Under the helmet is Dallas Police Department Senior Corporal Damon Cole, who has used his own money and vacation time over the past three years to change the public's perception of police offers. With four fellow Dallas policemen, Cole created Heroes, Cops and Kids, an organization dedicated to enhancing "the quality of life of children and young adults by developing effective relationships between children and positive adult role models."*

"The whole point here is to get them to forget about their illness, their pain, any kind of problem they're going through," Cole, who drove 13 hours from Dallas to East Tennessee to surprise the kids. Cole traveled in his in customized Dodge Charger that he redesigned to advertise Superman, who he also portrays when he isn't donning the Iron Man suit. 

The parents at the Children's Hospital enjoy the pleasure the visits bring to their children. "We just appreciate people coming through and doing something fun," said parent Kathryn Pafunda.
