Chicago Bears’ Charles Tillman Visits Rush

Chicago Bears cornerback Charles Tillman dropped by Rush University Medical Center last week bearing gifts for use by the patients at Rush Children’s Hospital.

Tillman, his Cornerstone Foundation and Fifth Third Bank visit the hospital on March 15 with “Charles’ Locker.” Designed to brighten the lives of chronically and critically ill children and their families, it was filled with iPads, notebook computers, DVD players, gaming systems and other items to help patients pass the time while undergoing treatment or recovering.

Tillman called the locker contents, which will be placed in Rush Children’s Hospital’s activity room, “just something to smile about and feel good.”

“I’m thankful for you guys letting us come in and help out,” he said.
