Colts Host Riley Kids on First Day of Camp

The Indianapolis Colts hosted Riley Hospital patients and their family members on the opening day of training camp at Anderson University.





INDIANAPOLIS – On Sunday, August 3, the Indianapolis Colts hosted a group of eleven Riley Hospital for Children at Indiana University Health patients and their family members at training camp in Anderson. The children and their families explored games and activities in Colts City, watched the team practice from reserved seats and enjoyed snacks and beverages in the Colts Hospitality Tent.

Once practice concluded, Coach Pagano invited the Riley Hospital patients to the 50 yard line to help break down practice. Coaches and players formed a tunnel for the patients that lead to the center of the huddle, where surrounding players offered high fives and words of encouragement.

After joining together to yell "Colts!" several players stayed after with Coach Pagano to interact with the children on the field. Coach Pagano and the team crouched down to see eye-to-eye with the patients and signed autographs, took pictures and gave handshakes and hugs. Some patients even had the chance to play a game of catch with QB Andrew Luck.

Once the children exited the field, they shared stories and displayed their new team autographs for their families. The Riley Hospital patients left training camp excited, confident and cheerful, as the team fully embraced each individual, letting the patients know that they too are inspiring to others.
