Superheroes for a Super Cause: High Rise Window Cleaners Rappel Down Building to Surprise Kids at Helen Devos Children’s Hospital Halloween Party
October 30, 2015 – Members of the Modern Window Cleaning High-Rise window washing team participated in the annual Spectum Health Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital Halloween party on Friday in downtown Grand Rapids, Michigan.
The Modern Window Cleaning team members dressed as Batman, Captain America, Iron Man, and Spider Man before rappelling down the side of the building. The “superheroes” stopped at each floor to wave at the children who were unable to join the festivities in the main lobby and outside garden at the children’s hospital. As they proceeded down the side of the hospital, the superheroes were cheered on by a large group of children, hospital staff, and passerby’s who had all gathered in the outside garden. Once the superheroes made it onto the ground, they were greeted by the many costumed children who had watched in awe as they descended down the side of the building, and the superheroes posed for countless pictures.
The superheroes then trekked back up to the top of the children’s hospital, and descended down the opposite side of the building, making sure to stop at each floor and wave at additional children who were unable to go outside and watch.
Everyone at Modern Window Cleaning feels honored to be a part of such a positive community event that supports the children at Spectrum Health Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital. Each “superhero” commented that they enjoyed seeing the smiles on every child’s face and felt privileged that they could bring joy to each child who they met.
The Halloween party at Spectrum Health Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital was covered by multiple local news agencies and through Spectrum Health’s Health Beat.
