Campaign teams MSU-Ole Miss together for BCH

Patients at Batson Children’s Hospital have one more reason to root for the Rebels and the Bulldogs. At each of the last three home football games at Mississippi State and Ole Miss, the universities will feature the state’s only children’s hospital in a campaign aimed at raising awareness of the hospital’s critical mission and needs.

As part of the coin toss at each game, Batson patients will be on the field and recognized as honorary co-captains. Outside the stadium, volunteers will staff a tent three hours before kickoff inside FanFair at Mississippi State and at Rebel Fanfare at Ole Miss where fans can donate $5 for an “Our Kids Got Game” bracelet in the respective school colors. The bracelets are available in Pediatrics, Batson Administration, Public Affairs
and in the Children’s Cancer Clinic.
