SOUTHWEST MIAMI-DADE, FLA. (WSVN) - He gained a reputation as a stuntman for pulling some of the heaviest and largest objects in the world, but he’s testing his strength at a South Florida hospital, hoping to inspire young patients.
The crowd cheered on Mark Kirsch, better known as Man vs. Impossible, at Nicklaus Children’s Hospital in Southwest Miami-Dade, Friday.
People watched as he pulled an ambulance 150 feet all by himself. His visit is part of the Super Hero of Hope nationwide tour.
“I’m pulling for all the children,” Kirsch said. “My message is that you, too, are a super hero. Everyone’s a super hero.”
Its mission is to motivate sick children to keep fighting their health battles.
“Most children are probably facing the biggest challenge of their life today, so I wanna bring a little bit of hope, trying to be the All American Superhero of Hope, to bring that feeling and vibe that they can do the impossible challenge of their life,” Kirsch said.
Kirsch also visited young patients and signed autographs.
Everyone who works with the Superheroes For Hope tour is a volunteer, including Kirsch.
