Here's something to cheer us all up.

The Cedar Rapids Kernels, along with Ronald McDonald House Charities of Eastern Iowa and Western Illinois, are announcing their "Kid Heroes" promotion for 2020.

An on-field ceremony sponsored by the O'Brien Family McDonalds will take place July 26th to "spotlight kids who have used Ronald McDonald House charities and services and showcase some of the incredible kids they meet and serve every day".

Nominations start Monday, March 30 and will be taken until Friday, May 8 or until the first 20 nominations are received.

Kids included in the 2018 and 2019 sets are asked not to apply to allow for as many new nominees as possible.
