PHOTOS: Nearly 600 patients and family members join us for a Gopher Football tailgating event

​Held at University of Minnesota Children's Hospital, event celebrates patients, families and our connection to the University of Minnesota.

Last Saturday, patients, families and staff members enjoyed a Gopher Football tailgating event at University of Minnesota Masonic Children's Hospital. Nearly 600 attendees enjoyed food, music (courtesy of Radio Disney), visits with Goldy the Gopher, and a chance to connect with other families at patient reunion tents.

After the tailgating event, families took a shuttle to the football game, where Collin Luitjens, a pediatric heart transplant patient, was featured as Goldy's Kid Captain for the game.

Many thanks to a.m. photography for the photos!
