Note: Starting May 1st and continuing for the 123 days leading up to the start of the 2011 college football season, "Project 1-2-3" will share pictures, videos and memorable moments from the last nine years of Special Spectators game day events.
Special Spectators was originally designed to create game day events for seriously ill children at college football games. As our collegiate partners discovered how much going to a game impacted the families, they asked us to host similar events for other sports. We've hosted kids at soccer matches, gymnastics meets, basketball and baseball games. This segment from ESPN2's morning show, Cold Pizza, features an event at a University of Akron men's basketball game. Delta Airlines also included this piece as part of their in-flight entertainment in September 2004.
