Tom Brady has a lot to keep him busy these days what with NFL training camp starting, endorsement deals, and his day-to-day life with his family but the New England Patriots quarterback still made time for some special friends.
On Wednesday, July 26, Brady made the dreams of nine Make-A-Wish children come true when he welcomed them to the Patriots’ home turf of Gillette Stadium.
“So fun being with my friends from Make A Wish! What a privilege to spend the afternoon with all of you!”, the five-time Super Bowl champion wrote on Instagram.
Brady posed for photos, watched game film, introduced the kids to teammate Rob Gronkowski, and took part in a Q&A session where he fielded a variety of interesting questions.
“Do football players actually do ballet for their footwork?” a child asks in a video posted to team’s Twitter acocunt.
“Maybe some do,” Brady said to chuckles in the room.

In addition to meeting their football hero, the kids also received personalized jerseys, autographed items and a tour of the The Hall at Patriot Place where New England’s five Super Bowl trophies are displayed.
“I loved everything,” said Make-A-Wish child Sebastian. “It felt like a dream come true.”
