The first leg of the 2015 Champions trip to DC was incredible. I am so grateful to get to photograph this trip for the past 3 years. Seeing all these amazing kids and all that they have overcome is so empowering and I am lucky to have had the chance to spend some time with these little heroes.
Here is some background information on the Champions program: One child from every state represents their area as a Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals Champion. These kids work all year as ambassadors to help educate people around the country that children’s hospitals need donations to provide the best care. They each have an incredible medical story and gather for their National Ambassador Tour in Washington DC where Congressional leaders. Then in February I get to tag along to the second leg of the trip to Orlando where the Champions inspire more than a thousand hospital representatives, corporate partners, celebrity friends and media partners.
