Ronald McDonald House Event
The Ronald McDonald House of Iowa City experienced a very sweet treat from University of Iowa’s SAL chapter. Officers and members created extra large Rice Krispy Treats in the shape of I-O-W-A and a tiger hawk. The residents were able to decorate their goodies with black and gold frosting and gold sprinkles.
Chapter President Emily Steinbach said their chapter was inspired by the Iowa Wave to do this event. “We really loved giving the kids and families a fun activity to do and take their minds off the treatments they were receiving here at the children’s hospital. We have constantly been inspired by the Iowa Wave and have made it our goal to bring hope to the children at UIHC!”
For those unfamiliar with the Iowa Wave, it is a new tradition at the University of Iowa after the opening of their new children’s hospital which overlooks Kinnick Stadium. During home football games, everyone turns and waves to the kids who get to watch the game from the hospital’s “Press Box.” According to Emily, “The Iowa Wave is somewhat of a social movement at Iowa dedicated to spreading cheer and hope to the kids receiving treatment in our hospital!”
