Life in Motion: A Superhero Christmas surprise

Local superheroes gave sick kids in the Upstate an unforgettable Christmas surprise. Heroes in Force swooped in on Dec. 23 to visit with patients at AnMed Health Women’s and Children’s Hospital in Anderson.

Batman, Wonder Woman, and Spiderman delivered stockings to the kids and gave them, and their parents, something to smile about.
