Hello from Washington, D.C.!

Posted On: 06/08/2010

It’s day 3 of Gillette patient Bella’s weeklong trip to Washington, D.C. as part of the Children’s Miracle Network Champions program.  She, and kids representing our 49 other states, are having the time of their lives — and keeping busy! They’ve already visited the Jefferson and Lincoln Memorials, the Washington Monument, and some of our nation’s most famous museums. Bella and her family even got to meet Minnesota senators Amy Klobuchar and Al Franken at the Capitol building.

The trip is all part of an important mission: to raise awareness, among government officials, of the exceptional care provided by Children’s Miracle Network hospitals, like Gillette, throughout the U.S.

Here is Bella outside the Lincoln Memorial:

And with her sister, Grace, at the Washington Monument:

So what’s next for Bella and her fellow Champion kids? Taking in a Nationals baseball game, and today, meeting the President of the United States!  Stay tuned for more photos from D.C.
