TEMPE, Ariz. (KSAZ)
We all know the ASU Sun Devils are busy preparing for the 2016 Cactus Bowl this Saturday, but some players are taking the time to give back to the community.
A handful of players served up some food and fun for children battling cancer.
The kids and their families are all from the Children's Cancer Network and got some delicious chicken fingers from Raising Cane's by some familiar faces, ASU Sun Devil players who are getting ready for the big Motel 6 Cactus Bowl Game.
"We're feeling good, we had a hard week of practice, but this is what the holiday is about, talking to them and spreading some cheer," said DJ Foster.
"We did a dollar donation where we were able to raise $28,000 to help out Children's Cancer Network," said Justin with Raising Cane's.
The kids were invited to hang out and get autographs from their favorite players.
"To see them be excited, to see their role models, and to realize they can do those things when they grow up too, and it's also fun to see kids being kids, even though they are dealing with cancer, or their brothers or sisters are dealing with cancer, they still want to be kids and have fun," said Patti Luttrell.
"My 16-year-old daughter and myself were both diagnosed this year, and they've done Christmas parties and makeovers, it's just nice to have the kids have something fun to look forward to and go do," said Shawnee Morgan.
