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 season, Blank Children's Hospital partners with the Cyclones to feature stories of courage and strength. The Kid Captains will take the field at Jack Trice Stadium for home games and assist with the coin toss.
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.
Nominations for 2022 are now closed.
