Over the weekend, the Toyota Grand Prix took over the downtown streets of Long Beach, California.  During the Grand Prix, certain celebrities come out to race for charity and this year was no different.  Keanu Reeves, the defending Celebrity Champion, returned to the track along with others like Adam Corolla, Adrien Brody, Tony Hawk, Brian Austin Green, Zachary Levi, and Jesse McCartney, to name a few.  While they were mainly visiting Long Beach for the races, some of these celebrites managed to take time out of their busy schedules to visit the Long Beach Memorial Hospital campus.  While there, they visited the Miller Children’s Hospital to hang out with children suffering from terminal diseases, as well as sign autographs, and give out little plush scion cars.  Most people don’t know about the visits since they don’t tell the media as to not make a big scene.  As I mentioned before, some of these kids are terminally ill, and it would be disrespectful to ignore that.

So a big Kudos to those celebrities to take a moment to spend time with the kids, and to show that they are more than just what people see on the big screen.
