See a sneak peak of the new U-M football-themed playroom at Mott Children's Hospital

By Staff

The new C.S. Mott Children's Hospital has offered a look at its "Little Victors" University of Michigan football-themed playroom that opens Nov. 13.

The interactive playroom is divided into nine "zones" meant to emulate the sights, sounds and energetic spirit of Michigan Stadium. It features a small scale press box, jungle gym equipment and high-definition projections of game footage.

The playroom is the result of a three-year fundraising effort by the U-M athletic department, which generated $450,000 for the project during its annual football Spring Game and Radio-o-Thon, according to a news release.

It's so sad that it took three years for the Athletic Department to raise the money for this. One of their star athletes could have easily written a check to fund this, but we rarely hear about former players donating money back to the university that provided the basis for their successful pro careers.

This is awesome! The kids and families deserve this new hospital. We can't wait for the tour.
