Overview

What is Cape Day?

The annual tradition of Cape Day is back on Oct. 20th. 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.
