U of I Children’s Hospital Shares a Moving Reminder on Facebook [PHOTO]
If you're headed to Kinnick Stadium for the game tomorrow, one Facebook user wants you to notice something you may not have paid much attention to before.
Just a few short weeks ago, we held our 20th annual Radiothon with The Children's Miracle Network at The University of Iowa Children's Hospital. The response was absolutely amazing and we can't thank you enough for all of your fantastic contributions. Radiothon may be over, but there are lots of kids whose visits aren't, and it's very important to remember that. Towering over Kinnick Stadium is the brand spankin' new U of I Children's Hospital, and a Facebook user by the name of Teresa Gingery Arenholz posted an awesome reminder to anyone who is planning to go to the Hawkeye game tomorrow. It was shared by the official University of Iowa Children's Hospital page, and here's what it says:
"To all my Cyclone and Hawkeye friends. This weekend as you proudly represent either your cardinalgold or goldblack at Kinnick stadium. Please take a minute to turn your attention FROM the scoreboard and TOWARDS the towering New Children's Hospital. Please take 1 minute and say a prayer for all those kids and families that would love to be in your seats and not stuck in ICU, the cancer floor or gently soothing their preemie baby. These kids are tougher than any defensive tackle, offensive receiver or quarterback that just got sacked. Here in the state of Iowa wE are blessed to have this amazing facility. So I call out all Hawkeye and Cyclone fans.....pray for these families....and support these little fighters!!!!!"
Thanks you, Teresa, for the reminder that there are families out there who need our prayers and support all year round. We hope everyone going to the game tomorrow has an awesome time, and don't forget the kids!
