BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Following his second-place finish on the CBS reality show “Beyond the Edge,” Ravens legend Ray Lewis made a surprise visit the Johns Hopkins Children’s Center on Monday to present his donation of $134,166 and meet with patients.
The patients and staff cheered for Lewis as he walked into the room, and the two-time Super Bowl champion was able to chat and visit with some of the pediatric patients.READ MORE: Mayor Recognizes Achievements Of Baltimore City Public Schools CEO Amid Grade-Fixing Allegations
Lewis tested his survival skills for 15 days in the Panamanian jungle, competing against eight other celebrities. The competitors raised money for the charity of their choice every day they stayed in the race and won challenges.
Lewis recounted how difficult the adventure was in an interview on WJZ at 9 in March.READ MORE: Maryland Weather: Tornado Warning Issued For Anne Arundel County
