Students don capes for CHOA patients


You may not know it, but superheroes are everywhere, and they come in all shapes, sizes, and ages, and over 460 of them can be found at Oak Grove Elementary.

Students at the school recently put on their superhero capes to show their support for some fellow superheroes battling illnesses and diseases at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. The hospital marked its 100th anniversary day by encouraging everyone in metro Atlanta to wear capes, and then to share photos of themselves at a special Twitter account, #CapeDayATL.

School nurse Amber Causey, R.N., received information about Cape Day from CHOA, and planned and organized the event at Oak Grove. She says the entire school participated, and loved it. She shared photos from the day with Amanda Wade, public relations coordinator at CHOA.

“It means so much to our patients and all of Children’s that you all participated and enjoyed Cape Day. What a truly humbling tribute to see kids supporting kids. We are big fans of Oak Grove,” said Wade in an email to Causey.
