Rappelling superheroes bring smiles to hospitalized kids

October 31, 2012 – Patients at Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital in Grand Rapids, Michigan experienced both tricks and treats on Halloween this year when Modern Window Cleaning employees dressed up as superheroes and rappelled down the side of the hospital windows. Hanging from ropes outside patient playrooms, the superheroes waved and interacted with the children, evoking surprise, smiles, excitement, and awe. “It’s Halloween and we wanted to give the kids something special for the day … hopefully make some kids happy,” said Spiderman.

The team certainly accomplished their goal, and celebrated with the children at a Halloween party inside after displaying their amazing feats.
