Otterbein Mascot Cardy and Cheerleaders Visit Nationwide Children’s Hospital


On April 26, the Otterbein FUND at Otterbein University held a day of giving and asked donors to vote on an activity to be performed by the university’s mascot, Cardy the Cardinal.

The 106 donors overwhelmingly chose for Cardy and the Cardinal cheerleaders to visit the patients and families of patients at Nationwide Children’s Hospital, and they donated $13,815 in the process! Other possible activities included Cardy parachuting from an airplane and filling the dean of students’ office with balloons. The donors represented 15 states; alumni donors graduated from 1950 through 2017.

Cardy visited Nationwide Children’s aon Tuesday, May 16, in the Galaxy Lounge.

Cardy had autograph cards and the cheerleaders gave out Otterbein coloring books, crayons, pom-poms and Cardy cut-outs. The event, “Otterbein University: Cardy says Kindness Matters” is part of a larger “Kindness Matters” initiative that Otterbein is undertaking with the support of the Columbus Foundation.
