Underwood

Colton Underwood took a break from handing out roses Sunday and instead visited kids at UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh.

The current star of ABC’s The Bachelor and a former NFL player with the then San Diego Chargers and Oakland Raiders, Underwood spent time with the kids as part of his non-profit organization The Colton Underwood Legacy Foundation. The organization, founded in 2015, works to provide resources for research and support for people with cystic fibrosis, a genetic disorder that affects the lungs and can cause difficulty breathing.

Photos on the hospital’s Facebook page show Underwood holding stuffed animals with a little girl, visiting a girl in her hospital room surrounded by “Get Well Soon” balloons and holding up a peace sign with a boy in front of a Pittsburgh Pirates themed Statue of Liberty.

UPMC wrote on their page, “Thank you to Colton Underwood and Colton Underwood Legacy Foundation for stopping by for a visit at UPMC Children’s this morning!”

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
