A Dyersville girl has been chosen as the Iowa Hawkeyes’ Kid Captain for Saturday’s football game against Minnesota.
Kid Captain is a partnership that began ten years ago between University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital and the Iowa Hawkeyes to honor pediatric patients and celebrate their inspirational stories.
8-year old Aubrey Bussan-Kluesner was diagnosed with a learning disorder, as well as ADHA, ODD, mixed receptive-expressive language disorder, anxiety disorder and speech sound disorder. Since her diagnoses, Aubrey has improved and continues to do well.
As Saturday’s Kid Captain, Aubrey will receive a commemorative jersey and special recognition from UI Stead Family Children’s Hospital and the Iowa Hawkeyes.
