Cape Day is an annual tradition held in October that encourages the community to honor and celebrate the superhero patients battling illnesses and injuries at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta.The ideas is to wear a cape in honor of those patients.

The day has also become a tradition at Buford City Schools, one that the district looks forward to celebrating each year. 

"Teaching our students to engage with our community, enriches their educational experience by learning empathy and community service," Buford City Schools Superintendent Robert Downs said. "Our partnership with CHOA over the last several years has provided our school district with support in each of our schools in various ways. From their Strong 4 Life program to the athletic trainers they provide our teams, we appreciate all they do to support our students and enjoy being able to give back to them with our support of Cape Day.”
