Disney Sports is proud to announce it is presenting the Iowa football program with its coveted Disney Sports Spirit Award, which annually goes to the sport’s most inspirational figures.
The University of Iowa football program is lifting the spirits of sick children this season. At the end of the first quarter of every home game, their Kinnick Stadium announcer urges all fans inside the stadium to turn and wave to the young patients staying at the children’s hospital that’s next door to the stadium. Even the referees and visiting teams join in with this heartfelt gesture.
As a result of this simple act of kindness, the young patients staying in the hospital overlooking the stadium are more optimistic and hopeful.
Check out this touching ESPN feature story on the “Kinnick Wave” and how it is changing lives every Saturday afternoon.
Witness the award being given to the Iowa football program on December 7 on ESPN during The Home Depot College Football Awards Show.
