UNIVERSITY CITY (WPVI) -- It was an incredible day at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia Monday.

Mr. Incredible and Elastigirl made a stop in University City to visit with some real-life heroes.

The kids got to pose for pictures with the popular characters. They also received care packages filled with toys, books and games.

Disney, the Starlight Foundation and 6abc were proud sponsors of the event.

"As you know, 6abc is really proud to be a part of the Walt Disney Company," said 6abc General Manager Bernie Prazenica. "What you are seeing today is part of a 100 million dollar initiative by the company to benefit children's hospitals all over the globe."
