Childrens Miracle Network 2016-17 CHAMPIONS
62 children enter a Children's Miracle Network Hospital for treatment every minute. Whether they suffer from common childhood afflictions like asthma and broken bones, or fight bigger challenges like birth defects or cancer, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals provide comfort, treatment and hope to millions of sick kids. In fact, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals treat one in 10 children in North America each year.
Each year, we identify a child with a remarkable medical story from each state, Washington D.C., and Puerto Rico. These “Champions” serve as the face for the millions of children treated at our hospitals every year. Our Champions and their families travel to Washington, D.C., and Orlando, Fla. on an official Ambassador Tour to highlight the vital work of children’s hospitals.
