‘Superheroes’ pay a visit to kids at Kadlec’s pediatric center

A roomful of kids at Kadlec’s pediatric center in Richland got a special visit from superheroes on Wednesday.

Employees at Sparkling Clean Windows in Kennewick dressed up in full costume for the day and visited the kids. The real highlight – one window washer dressed up as Spiderman and rappeling down the side of the building as the kids watched from inisde.

“It’s a really fun way for the whole team to have some teambuilding and just put a smile on people’s faces,” said Jason Klovansky, owner of Sparkling Clean Windows.

He said his company has done this off and on for the past seven or eight years. They got inspired when they heard about a window-washing company overseas that did it.

“We have kids who are sick or not feeling well, or kids that come in for outpatient appointments that have to get a lot of pokes and procedures,” said Jeny Jones, child life specialist. “So it’s fun to have something enjoyable and exciting they can look forward to.”
