Kid Captain Program 

When children are faced with a challenging medical situation, they are often a source of inspiration to those around them - their families, their friends, our hospital staff and others. We want to help share that inspiration by recognizing these children through our "Kid Captain of the Game" program, in partnership with Iowa State Athletics.

During the Iowa State football and basketball seasons, Blank Children's Hospital is partnering with the Cyclones to feature stories of courage and strength. The Kid Captains take the field at at Jack Trice Stadium for home games and assist with the coin toss. The basketball Kid Captains will take the court with the Cyclone team captains at  Hilton Coliseum for select home games.

If your child has been an inspiration to others through a medical journey and has received care at Blank Children's Hospital, nominate him or her for Kid Captain. Entries will be accepted through June 1, 2018. 

Blank Children's Hospital is proud to be partnering with ISU Athletics for the eighth year. Meet the Kid Captains from the previous years:
