Some of the bravest super heroes fly under the radar and don’t wear a special suit, a la The Avengers. So Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta decided to honor and recognize these quiet heroes – young patients, courageously battling illness and disease – when it launched the first ‘Cape Day’ in 2014.

The community was encouraged to become caped crusaders, donning capes to celebrate the young super heroes fighting obstacles and staring down challenges that most people couldn’t imagine. As a proud research partner of Children’s Healthcare, the Petit Institute community has responded each year – if you look closely, you might catch Petit Institute staff, faculty, or students speeding through the atrium and halls, their capes flying behind them.

Well, the tradition has found a new and mighty supporter this year as the Georgia Tech football team partnered with Children’s Healthcare and adidas to unveil a new ‘Cape Day’ uniform that will be worn by the Yellow Jackets when they host North Carolina, Oct. 5, at Bobby Dodd Stadium.
