Madison, Wis.- Batman, Spiderman and Captain America will be washing windows tomorrow, July 30, at American Family Children’s Hospital starting at 11 a.m.

Al’s Window Cleaning company will be cleaning the windows and to boost the spirits of the kids, the workers will dress up as classic superheroes and rappel outside down the building and wave to patients and families inside the hospital.

Patients, families and staff will gather in playrooms at the hospital and media will have access to inside and outside areas. (Note: The hospital is on UW-Madison property, so any drone use would have to be approved by UW-Madison. However, the sidewalk across the street is not on campus property.)

The event will start at 11 a.m. and go until approximately 12:30 p.m. Tuesday, July 30. Below is an approximate schedule. There will be four stops and no guarantee of patients in each area, so stops could be shorter or longer.  Please text or call Emily upon arrival. Meet in the lobby of the children’s hospital.
