Gronk Visits Children At Portland Hospital [PHOTOS]
Rob Gronkowski isn't crying into his Bud Light over the Patriots' Super Bowl loss. The beloved Patriot spent Tuesday visiting three children's hospitals in Rhode Island, Boston and Maine.
The Gronk and his family made a generous $25,000 donation to the Barbara Bush Children's Hospital in Portland. The money was raised through the Gronk Nation raffle of AFC Championship and Super Bowl tickets, according to MaineHealth.org.
The hospital says the money will be used to purchase specialized equipment, and fund health and wellness programs aimed at children. The donation also will support the Child Life program, which provides fun distractions to the children receiving treatment at BBCH.
Gronk also spent time with some of the kids being treated at the Portland hospital. Of course, he taught them how to spike a football.
Rob also visited the Hasbro Children’s Hospital in Rhode Island and Boston Children’s Hospital. In all, the Gronkowski family donated $75,000 to the three hospitals.
