Gophers Volunteer at My Superhero Day
Gophers participated in the third annual My Superhero Day.

March 30, 2012

On Thursday, nearly 20 Golden Gopher student-athletes volunteered their time at the University of Minnesota Amplatz Children’s Hospital for the third annual My Superhero Day. The all-day event was put on for all patients and faculty to recognize the superhero in all of us.

The student-athletes helped the hospitals Physical Therapy staff with “Superhero Strength Training”. Gophers interacted with patients by helping them complete obstacle courses, playing catch and decorating capes. The Golden Gophers also signed t-shirts and posters for the patients.

The hospital also is home to Minnesota’s only children's behavioral inpatient unit and programming exclusively devoted to children ages 12 and younger. Amplatz Children's Hospital features one of the three largest kidney transplant programs in the world specializing in infants and small children.
