There’s a New Addition to the Cat Walk

UK Athletics

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.

    It’s all fun and games until it hits you in the back of the legs or runs over someone’s foot.

      OMG…. “my dixie”. How about chill and acknowledge how cool this is? Must be awful to live in your world of negativity.

      The joy this is going to give sick kids going through hard times will be awesome. That the idea and the cart was developed in part by a UK football player in the engineering school is even better.

      Great job Luke!

      Obviously my Dixie doesn’t see the positive big picture and focuses on the negative.

      This is awesome for these kids!!

      Dixie is a challenged UofLittleBrother fan who has very little education.

      Dixie was once run over by a baby stroller, and distrusts anything with wheels. Hot Wheels and Matchbox cars absolutely terrify him.

      It’s Kentucky Football. How much positivity can there be?

      Yes it is Kentucky football and we’re proud as can be of our Wildcats. There is a ton of positivity for our Cats since each year Stoops and company have been here we continue to recruit better and play better. Go visit our little step brother in Louisville and enjoy losing more games. Their dirty program needs fans.

      Dixie doesn’t even know the definition of positivity, I think he maybe commenting from a prison cell.

      I couldn’t even name 1 player on Louisville. Not a fan.

      It is risky as soon as your alarm clock goes off in the morning! It’s really very risky to get out of bed so you can choose to find a risk in everything. I know because I often do [insert hand over mouth emoji]!

    I can’t imagine how lonely and sad dixie must be. I hope you find friendship sometime in your life.

      I think “Go Deep” is referring to football, which is probably not what you were hoping for.
