Wonder Capes Help Hospitalized Children Soar
Wonder Capes came about when a little girl, hospitalized for a virus, asked if she could run down the hospital hallways wearing her homemade super hero cape. Before long, the cape was being shared with other children, many of which were seriously ill. Says Wonder Capes' founder, "Tears came to parents’ eyes, as they could not
remember their child giggling or having fun. No one cared that another
child might have lacked hair, had a mask, or an IV pole – they were too
busy having fun, pretending to act out one scenario after another."
Here, four little superheroes try their Wonder Capes on for size outside of the Sanford Children's Hospital in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. To learn more, visit www.wondercapes.com.
