Phil Fills In: Dressing up like Superman for sick kids at WakeMed

Posted: Updated:
RALEIGH, N.C. -

Thousands of kids visit hospitals across North Carolina every year, including at WakeMed Raleigh.

Some are there for broken bones while others may be there for a more serious illness. Either way, it’s tough to see a child of any age stuck in a hospital bed.

In the latest installment of Phil Fills In, Phil Sanchez loses the suit and tie for a red cape and heads to WakeMed

This was the second year that WakeMed provided a superhero surprise for some of its younger patients. Like journalist Clark Kent, Phil transformed into Superman. But he wasn’t alone; Batman, Iron Man and Spiderman were also on hand as they scaled down the side of WakeMed.
