Hawkeye Cruise XXXII Sheds Light on University of Iowa’s Wave for the Kids

February 25, 2018 – Cedar Rapids, Iowa Travel Leaders / Destinations Unlimited’s Hawkeye Cruise XXXII in the Caribbean helped to spread the word about the University of Iowa’s Wave for the Kids supporting the sick kids in the University of Iowa Children’s Hospital. In a video posted to the agency Facebook page here, more than 25,000 people have watched retired University of Iowa Associate Athletic Director Mark Jennings address over 400 passengers on Royal Caribbean’s Jewel of the Seas. Jennings shared with passengers and fans that Wave for the Kids has been nominated for the Best Sporting Moment of the Year by Laureus for 2018.


“Social media is very powerful. Mark received an emotional response from fellow passengers, but it’s amazing the impact it has made on Facebook,” agency Owner/CEO Duane Jasper stated. “We hope that by sharing his message, more people will vote for the Laureus Award so that Coach Ferentz can accept the award in Monaco on Tuesday. It’s tremendous what the fans have done for so many kids in the hospital.”


Fans can vote here. Voting ends Monday night and the recipient of the Best Sporting Moment of the Year will be announced on Tuesday.
