NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — There was a whole lot of clowning around at the Children’s Hospital of the King’s Daughters on Tuesday.
10 On Your Side was at the hospital as two of the clowns from the Ringling Brothers, Barnum & Bailey Circus took some time to perform for the kids. The performance gave the kids a chance to take their minds off the difficult treatments they’re going through.
“So, when you see the smiles on the kids faces and the adults faces and you hear the laughter, that’s perfect, because you know what you’re doing is reaching them, and that is the best compliment you can get as a performer, and they say laughter is the best medicine, so it’s pretty good to share that,” Kelly Ballagh, one of the clowns, told WAVY.com.
You can see the clowns for yourself when they come to Norfolk and Hampton next month.
