Even though football season is still a few months away, Eastern Iowans are already preparing for the Hawkeyes to return to Kinnick Stadium. But, football isn't the only thing to look forward to this year! The return of football season will, no doubt, also mean the return of the famous "Iowa Wave" that touched hearts all around the world last season.

Last year an Iowa Wave t-shirt was introduced to fans, with the proceeds going to an amazing cause. The Iowa Wave Shirt website states:

"During the 2017 football season, our community of givers raised more than $440,000 for the University of Iowa Stead Family Children's Hospital. Today, each person that wears an Iowa Wave Shirt supports new and innovative research at UISFCH through the Iowa Wave Shirt Pediatric Research Fund, in addition to supporting the Adolescent and Young Adult Cancer Center and expanded and enhanced care within the Child Life Program."

In preparation for the new football season, another Iowa Wave shirt has just gone on sale, but this one is gold instead of black. To celebrate the one-year anniversary, the creators of the shirts are asking you to "Be Bold and Wear Gold." 100% of the proceeds will go to the UISFCH, with a goal of one million dollars.
