Hometown hero and NFL quarterback Carson Wentz returned to Bismarck this week to help Sanford Health make a major announcement.

According to KFYR-TV, Wentz was in Bismarck to announce Sanford's POWER program and the new facility on the Northside of town. The new facility will be a 21,000 square foot building and will bring new services to the new building.

As if we need another reason to love Carson Wentz, after his announcement, he visited the children’s wing of the hospital, met with kid patients and gave away autographed footballs.

I’m sure there were Carson Wentz sightings all over the Bismarck-Mandan area this week.
