Carson King reaches $2 million in donations for Children’s Hospital

(KWWL) Carson King announced on his Instagram account that he has reached over $2 million in donations for the University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital.

Governor Kim Reynolds signed a proclamation earlier this week declaring September 28 as Carson King Day in Iowa. King plans to be at the Hawkeye’s game tomorrow and participate in “the wave.”

24-year-old King rose to national fame when he held a sign up as ESPN’s College GameDay aired from Ames on the day of the Cy-Hawk rivalry game a few weeks ago.

A reporter at the DSM Register dug into this local hero’s Twitter page and found an 8-year old post that was deemed “offensive.” King then made a public apology. The Des Moines Register reporter has since been fired.
