In February I got to be involved in a radio thon for Children's Hospital. It started last November when they taped my story for to play during Alice's 36 Hours of Miracles. I also had a news crew come out and do a story on me for them to play on that first day. It was really cool to be on 9news. The radio thon lasted for three days from 6am to 6pm. I was going to be on the TV and the Radio live to kick off the fundraiser. I was supposed to be there on Wednesday morning early but I got very sick and ended up going to the E.R. at Children's Hospital even earlier (at 3am). They let me go from the E.R. to the atrium so I could do my TV and Radio interview. Even though I was not feeling good, I was still excited and did a perfect job. It was fun being a part of such a big fundraiser.
In April I got to go to Children's Hospital and speak at the fundraising kick-off campaign for Costco, Walmart and Sam's Club. I had a lot of fun speaking in front of them all and I loved that they all laughed at the jokes I put into my speech. I really love to help do everything I can to raise money for Children's Hospital in Colorado. If you want to watch me speaking at one of the events, please click the link below:
In May I got to go to two golf tournaments so everyone could meet a real patient of the hospital and hear my story (I did my speech at both events). At one event I got to drive around and sell Children's Miracle Network pins. I could not believe how many we sold and how many people loved getting to meet me. At the other event I got to drive around and take pictures with each of the golf teams. The day got a little more fun when my Dad let me drive the golf cart (it was my first time). I drove about 4 holes until someone came up to us and told me I could not drive anymore. The real fun of the day was watching all of those people having a good time and supporting all of us kids.
I will be telling you about each event, from now on, after it happens.
I am so happy that I was chosen as the 2011 Children's Miracle Network Colorado Champion and cannot wait to help all of the kids that need help.
Your Smiling And Happy Colorado Champion,
