(KGO) -- An idea to make a music video by two nurses in Minnesota has become more than they ever dreamed. The nurses and staffers at Amplatz Children's Hospital wanted to give back to the patients who inspired them on a daily basis.

The song "Brave" by Sara Bareilles was a perfect fit, so they put together a video on their days off and between shifts, to honor the kids for their bravery.

"We know these kids, we know their stories, we know what they've been through, but for other people to see how amazing they are and to be affected in the same way just means so much to us and we hope it continues to inspire other kids," Brittany Bloemke said.

But no one expected that the video, made for fun, would go viral. More than 340,000 people have watched it since it was posted.
