Montreal Alouettes Players Visit CHU Sainte-Justine

Montreal Alouettes Players Visit CHU Sainte-Justine

After suffering a stinging setback in Hamilton, Montreal Alouettes players found a good way to smile again on Monday. 

They visited sick children at the CHU Sainte-Justine, the Montreal Children’s Hospital and the Shriners Hospital for Children in Montreal.

For a few hours, they had the chance to sign autographs and hand out gifts to young fans who welcomed them with open arms into their world. 

Linebacker, Rod Davis, father of three boys aged 4 to 6 years old, was profoundly touched when he entered the rooms. 

This experience allowed them to reflect on their life in general and realize how lucky they are. They are always ready to give back to the community. 

For the last three years, Rod Davis has been involved in a similar activity with the Edmonton Eskimos.

This time, due to the language barrier, Davis could not always communicate as he would have wanted to.

Although a smile is said to be worth at least a thousand words. 

Running back Dahrran Diedrick was very happy to participate in this team activity and to help some children put a smile on their faces. 

For his part, one of Jeff Reinebold’s assistant defensive coordinators, Montreal’s Jean-Marc Edme, was shaking his head when he walked through the corridors of CHU Sainte-Justine hospital.

What those kids are going through is unfair and has touched many players.

The coaches hope that this experience has given their team a source of motivation for the rest of the season.
