MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – A Minnesota teenager went above and beyond for his Eagle Scout project.

Mason Stoltz unveiled new music therapy carts at Children’s Hospital Monday. The carts can easily be moved from room to room to help children heal.

He got the idea when he saw his sister being helped by music.

“She was really sick and she didn’t really want to move that much, but then the music therapist came in with all these shakers and everything,” Stoltz said. “Right away my sister just perked up and she started playing with them. She had a blast and it just helped to motivated her to kind of move more.”

Mason also built toy MRI carts so patients facing those tests could use dolls to get comfortable with the process.
