AUSTIN (KXAN) — Regardless of whether or not they’re DC Comics or Marvel superheroes, all of them joined forces at Dell Children’s Hospital Thursday morning for a good cause.
The Austin Police Department, in partnership with the Seton Family of Hospitals and Wells Fargo, hosted the second annual Super Hero Day. The goal of the event is to provide a fun-filled day for the patients in the hospital.
Austin police officers took on the alter egos of Batgirl, Batman, Captain America, Green Arrow, Spiderman, Superman and many more! And as real super heroes usually do, the patients got to see the super heroes rappel down the side of the hospital.
“You have the Austin Police Department who are superheroes everyday being dressed as superheroes wearing a different uniform to bring smiles to these young people who are here fighting all types of challenges,” said APD Chief of Police Art Acevedo.
