Patients and guests of Makati Medical Center were recently treated to a supercharged Saturday when their favorite characters from the Avengers and Justice League paid a visit to pose for photos and say hello to pediatric patients.
Nearly 200 hospital guests, some dressed up as their favorite characters from the Marvel and DC comics and movies, posed with the superheroes at MakatiMed’s Main Lobby in Tower 1.
This was a follow-up to MakatiMed’s successful Star Wars event in March, in partnership with the 501st Legion, an international fan organization that raises money for charity.
The superhero group was led by commanding officer of the 501st legion, Manny Mendoza, as the Dark Knight. “We’re glad and very thankful for being in another MakatiMed event. Superheroes will always be part of every child’s life, and we’re happy to bring the fun of what we do to the kids here in the hospital,” said Manny.
Members of Manny’s team came as the Avengers’ Captain America, Antman, Falcon, Iron Man, Black Widow and Spiderman, teaming up with the Justice League’s Superman, Supergirl, Batman and the Flash.
They then visited pediatric patients in their rooms to wish them a speedy recovery.
“A hospital can feel like a frightening and intimidating environment, especially for young patients. That is why we set up this special event to bring fun and warmth in MakatiMed,” said vice president for marketing and sales services Arlyn Songco.
