Dallas Cowboys Spread Holiday Cheer to Cook Children's Patients

After two years of virtual holiday visits, the Dallas Cowboys were able to surprise patients in-person this year.

The Dallas Cowboys stopped by for their annual visit with Cook Children's patients on Dec. 12, 2022.

Football players and cheerleaders surprised patients in multiple departments at the Medical Center to spread some holiday cheer. There were extra smiles from that win over the Houston Texans!

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 33 years – with the last two years being held virtually due to the pandemic.
