The Toronto Raptors just passed the halfway point of the 2018-19 season and they’re on pace for a franchise-best season after posting their most impressive record through the first 41 games in franchise history at 29-12. While the team is currently fighting for top spot in the Eastern Conference, they’ve also made it a point to put the fans first throughout the year.

On Thursday afternoon, the Raptors paid a visit to some fans who are unable to make it out to the games as the team made their annual visit to The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids).

From the starting five to the coaching staff, just about everyone on the roster made the trip to SickKids to spend time with the children and brighten up their days through games, baking and hugs.

Signing autographs has become part of the players’ daily routines over the years, but on Thursday Serge Ibaka switched things up and decided to ask one of the real MVPs for her autograph instead.


Both the Raptors and the children get a lot out of the team’s annual visit and is something that goes a very long way.
