What is Cape Day?
The annual tradition of Cape Day is back on Oct. 19th. While some superheroes battle scary villains, at Children’s, our superheroes fight something much scarier—illnesses and injuries that many of us could never imagine. But when they wear a cape, nothing is impossible. Please join us as we celebrate all of our superhero patients by wearing a cape on Cape Day.
“Be Someone’s Superhero” Kindness Campaign
To make the fifth year of Cape Day extra special, we’re asking everyone to be someone’s superhero by doing a good deed in the community in honor of our patients. It’s easy to get involved: Buy a cape, wear it while performing an act of kindness – big or small! – and pass it on. Whether it’s buying coffee for the person behind you in line, giving flowers to a friend, writing a note for an acquaintance that made your week or raking leaves for a neighbor, you have the power to spread kindness. Together, we can show our superhero patients how they inspire us each and every day.
Don’t be shy! We’d love to hear how you’re making a difference in the community or how someone else brightened your day. Share your updates on social using #CapeDayATL throughout the month of October and feel free to send photos and stories to Jessica Pope for consideration.
If you need some inspiration, check out this video. You may remember DJ: Back in 2014, he imploded a building during the first-ever Cape Day. He’s grown a lot since then, and so has Children’s. We enlisted his help to take a look back at how far we’ve come and remind us how a little kindness can go a long way.
