SALT LAKE CITY -- Patients at Primary Children's Medical Center had some special visitors Wednesday.
Several members of the Utah Jazz -- including Deron Williams, Carlos Boozer, C.J. Miles, the Jazz Bear and Coach Jerry Sloan -- visited children there.
"[We] get a chance to hopefully put a smile on a couple of kids' faces and help them take their mind off what they're really going through. At the same time, wish them well, hope they get out of the hospital soon," Boozer said.
The Jazz players said they get just as much out of the visits as the children and they hope others will follow their example to volunteer somewhere or do something to make someone's life better.
