The toughest Hawkeyes

Since 2009, UI Stead Family Children’s Hospital and the Iowa Hawkeyes have partnered to honor pediatric patients and celebrate their inspirational stories through the Kid Captain program. Over the past 11 years, 3,320 children have been nominated and 147 Kid Captains have been selected from 96 cities in 8 states.

“What a magnificent way to really make a Saturday special for families that are fighting tough battles,” says Kirk Ferentz, UI head football coach.
