Iowa Football Fans Wave To Sick Kids In Cool New Tradition

College football teams all have their unique traditions during games, and the University of Iowa showed last weekend that there’s always room for one more – especially one that’s so sweet.

The Hawkeyes opened their season at home with a win over Wyoming, but during the game they started an amazing new tradition.

Just across the street from Kinnick Stadium is the University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital. It actually overlooks the stadium, which means the kids on the higher floors can see some of the action.

So with this in mind, the 70,000 fans have decided to take a moment during each game to turn to the hospital and wave to the kids. The excited kids then wave back.
