Luck and Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health hosted the event to reward those kids who participated in Change the Play.

Luck told the crowd he loved playing all sports when he was a kid.

“I know when I was younger, all I wanted to do was be outside and play sports. My favorite sport growing up was not football, it was actually soccer. Anybody here play soccer?” Luck asked the crowd. “I loved playing basketball. Anyone play hoops? It’s Indiana–doesn’t everyone play basketball when they grow up?”

Change the Play is an 8-week program that started with children to do at home with their parents but now it is being introduced at schools.

Colts mascot Blue was there along with the Colts cheerleaders. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
