The Kinnick Wave swept Iowa City and the entire sports world this fall, and its impact is still being felt well after the Hawkeyes have played their final home game of the 2017 season.
A few weeks after the Kinnick Wave tradition started at the beginning of the 2017 campaign, a group of Iowa fans started selling the Iowa Wave Shirt. The shirts debuted on Nov. 4 when the Hawkeyes pulled off one of the biggest upsets of the season over Ohio State and since then the group has sold more than 22,000 shirts with 100 percent of the proceeds going to the University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital.
The Iowa Wave Shirt raised more than $430,000, and the group was set to make that donation to the hospital on Thursday, according to USA Today’s George Schroeder.
After selling more than 22,000 of these T-shirts and promising to give 100% of profits to @UIchildrens, the folk behind The Iowa Wave Shirt will present the hospital with a check today—for more than $430,000. #IowaWave
