This year the Cat Walk has a new, heartwarming addition.
Each week the Kentucky football will be joined by a special guest when they march toward the Joe Craft Football Training Facility on game day. With the help of the UK College of Engineering and Toyota, a child from the UK Children’s Hospital will ride down Talbott Todd Way with the football team in this incredible pushcart.
One of those who helped design this masterpiece is starting offensive guard Luke Fortner. A junior in the College of Engineering, Fortner collaborated with TMMK members to make it happen.
“There’s a lot of people out there that go their whole lives and all their interests are separate, and they don’t get to really bring them together,” Fortner said. “The fact that I get the chance to have a project that brings together two important parts of my life, is just really awesome, and I’m really lucky to have that opportunity.”
You’ll see the pushcart take its first ride today at 9:45 a.m. outside of Gate 1.
