Event goal to provide a fun-filled day for the patients at Dell Children’s Medical Center.
The Austin Police Department, in partnership with the Seton Healthcare Family and Wells Fargo, hosted the third annual Super Hero Day at Dell Children’s Medical Center on Wednesday, Oct. 4, 2017. The goal of the event was to provide a fun-filled day for the patients in the hospital, giving them the opportunity to interact with Austin police officers in uniform and dressed as Super Heroes.
APD officers were dressed as the following Super Heroes: Batgirl, Batman, Captain America, Flash, Hawkeye, Ironman, Robin, Spiderman, Superman, Wolverine and Wonder Woman. Two APD officers were dressed as villains Cat Woman and The Riddler and tried to spoil the day’s fun, avenging The Joker, who was arrested after trying to thwart last year’s Super Hero Day. With patients looking on, the Super Heroes rappeled down the hospital walls into the courtyard. After capturing Cat Woman and The Riddler, the Super Heroes signed autographs and interacted with the children in the auditorium.
Special thanks to the Dell Children’s Medical Center, Ava, Austin Police Association, Cops 4 Charities, Yacktman Asset Management, Culver’s, Lucy’s in Disguise with Diamonds, Bigmouth Announcing, Raven’s Closet, and Wells Fargo.
