Caped crusaders take over University of Minnesota Masonic Children’s Hospital on Superhero Day

Our annual Superhero Day is a chance to recognize the heroes among us, including our patients and their families—and the hospital staff who care for them.
Thanks to all our staff, volunteers and patients for making ‪Superhero Day‬ 2016 an event to remember!

On Thursday, Braylon Holmon sat thoughtfully on his bed, trying to decide which superpower he’d prefer to have. After a few moments, he spoke up. 

“I’d want my power to be speed, super speed, so that I could win races,” Braylon said. 

Braylon, a University of Minnesota Masonic Children’s Hospital patient, was one of many celebrating Superhero Day 2016. The annual event at the hospital is a chance to recognize the heroes among us, including our patients and their families—and the hospital staff who care for them. 

Dozens of caped crusaders—many of them volunteers—took over the hospital lobby to take photos with patients and family, play games, dance and participate in a handful of other activities. 

The event is sponsored by Love Your Melon, the University of Minnesota Foundation and our Child-Family Life Department
