7th Annual Hawkeye Day for Camp Courageous at Kinnick Stadium in Iowa City
Saturday, May 5, Oskaloosa Lions Club will accompany several special Hawkeye fans to the 7th annual Hawkeye Day for Camp Courageous at Kinnick Stadium in Iowa City.
This is an opportunity of a lifetime for campers to visit with the Iowa Hawkeye football players, coaches, and staff. Camp Courageous campers will enjoy lunch provided by Martin Brothers, and a tour of the Iowa football complex. Campers will receive from the Petroleum Marketers & Convenience Stores of Iowa a special football souvenir that can be autographed by the players, coaches, and staff.
“This is one of those experiences that will never be forgotten by the campers who attend. We cannot thank enough Kirk Ferentz, along with the players and staff for this opportunity. It is heartwarming that individuals so gifted and talented and busy will take the time to spend with these special campers. Every year the players do an exceptional job, engaging the campers. We would also like to thank Martin Bros., the Petroleum Marketers and Convenience Stores of Iowa and Kum & Go for providing all the goodies for the campers. We have campers that have had a hard time falling asleep the night before, in anticipation of this big day,” said Charlie Becker, Camp Courageous Executive Director.
“Camp Courageous holds a special place in the hearts of Lions Clubs throughout Iowa,” said Debbie Doty, president of Oskaloosa Lions Club. “We are thrilled that we can invite people with special needs in our community to attend this event, and are excited to partner with Imagine the Possibilities to make it happen.”
Oskaloosa Lions Club meets at 6:30 p.m. on the 2nd Tuesday of each month at the Oskaloosa Public Library.
