Kid Captain is a partnership that began in 2009 between University of Iowa Children’s Hospital and the Iowa Hawkeyes to honor pediatric patients and celebrate their inspirational stories. Their strength and determination reminds us how truly courageous these young people are. We are pleased to introduce the 2015 Kid Captain starting line-up!
