HOUSTON--- The University of Houston Women's Basketball team took a break from their offseason workouts to spend some time with the kids from the Texas Children's Hospital and Ronald McDonald House this past week.

The Cougars played games, shared stories, and even showed off some of their basketball skills in an effort to brighten the days of some of Houston's youth.

"It's so important for us to go out and make a positive impact in our community," said head coach Ronald Hughey. "But even more importantly, I want our players to understand that things aren't that bad. There is always someone who has it worse off than you do.

"We live in such a `me' society today, where everyone wants things done right away. In reality though, if we look after each other as people, good things will happen to us as individuals. I want our team to be selfless, not only on the court, but off the court as well. That's going to be one of the biggest things we stress as a program."

The Ronald McDonald House has been serving communities for over 40 years and now has over 338 houses located across the United States. The organization is dedicated to helping sick children overcome their illnesses

The RMHC now has over 144,000 volunteers and staff members working tirelessly to help and support America's youth and their families. To see how you can help, visit www.rmhc.org.
