Kid Captain Myles Peterman being announced at an Iowa Hawkeye football game

Kid Captain is a partnership between University of Iowa Children’s Hospital and the Iowa Hawkeyes to honor pediatric patients and celebrate their inspirational stories. Their strength and determination as they face life-threatening illness and injury reminds us how truly courageous these young people are.

Nominations for the 2014 Kid Captain season are now closed. Kid Captains will be publically announced in August 2014.

Over the past five years, 67 Kid Captains, representing 6 states and 54 communities, have been honored through this program.
