Grace, Cody, Cheyanne, Sam, Elijah, Ryan, Rebekah, Tyler, David, Amisha, Reid and Asaiah. Who are these people? These are the names of 12 children. The names of 12 little people that I have the honour of spending the next week with and I really couldn’t be more excited!
"Every year Children’s Miracle Network nominates a “champion” from each Canadian member hospital to serve as the ambassador for the millions of children treated at our hospitals, and to highlight the vital work these children’s hospitals are… doing every day."
Today I begin a road trip like no other!! I n just a couple of hours I have the awesome privilege of joining 12 young Champions and their families from across Canada as they are treated like royalty, and whisked away to #Celebration13 in Orlando Florida. At this moment we are currently loading up onto huge busses and making our way to the Toronto International Airport. Cameras charged, and suitcases packed (some of us have suitcases over packed – go ahead and point your fingers at me). We are ready to watch these incredible young people have the adventure of a lifetime. Thanks to Walmart Canada, these families are already smiling and the journey has just begun!
Who know what lays ahead for these young Champions? Imagine the stories they will be able to go home and tell their family and friends! I hope you will follow along with me for every goose bump worthy moment. I will be chatting, tweeting and updating everyday on Instagram, Twitter and my Facebook page. The hashtags are easy to remember #Champions13 #Celebration. We will be celebrating these champions all week long. Nothing would make me happier then to have you come along for the ride, tweet with me, comment on their photos, share their stories and cheer on our Champions! Chat soon, this is going to be…..amazing.
