Patients, staff, teachers, and Hawkeye fans have all been featured in a half-hour documentary as part of Big Ten Network's new series "The B1G Moment."

The First Wave: The Story Behind Iowa's Football Tradition follows the events leading up to the first time Kinnick Stadium turned after the first quarter of Hawkeye football to wave to the kids in the University of Iowa Stead Family Children's Hospital.


The documentary shows how the tradition got its start from a simple Facebook that blew up and turned into a nationwide heartfelt initiative to let the kids battling disease, illness, and injury that we've all got their back.

Check out this extended preview of the documentary, and if you have kids, know kids, or have a heart, you're going to tear up.

The short documentary originally aired on Monday, September 12th, and is set to air again on the Big Ten Network on Thursday, September 22nd at 9:30 am and Wednesday, September 28th at 5:00 pm.
