Dallas Cowboys Bring Christmas to Cook Children's Patients

Patients were surprised with a special visit from the Dallas Cowboys today.

Christmas, Cowboys, and holiday cheer! The Dallas Cowboys stopped by for their annual visit with Cook Children's patients on Dec. 4, 2023. 

Football players and cheerleaders surprised patients in multiple departments at the Fort Worth Medical Center to spread some holiday cheer. Everyone was so excited to greet the team, especially after Thursday's win against the Seattle Seahawks!

Each child receives a stocking loaded with goodies from the Dallas Cowboys and a special toy provided by the UnitedHealthcare Children’s Foundation.

Under the guidance of Mrs. Gene Jones, the entire Cowboys team has conducted annual holiday visits to local children’s hospitals for the past 34 years – a very special tradition that we are all grateful to experience.
