Thank you to Walmart Gander and Walmart Canada for making the Children’s Miracle Network Champions Program possible. Because of your dedication and support, our province and our children’s hospital are able to celebrate another miracle: 2014/15 JANEWAY CHAMPION CHILD BROOKE GIDGE.

As the Janeway’s Champion, Brooke will have the opportunity to travel to Toronto and Orlando with Children’s Miracle Network to represent Newfoundland and Labrador’s sick and injured Janeway children. In Toronto she will met with champion children of all ages from across Canada. Then, together, these children and their families will travel to Walt Disney World in Orlando for various Children’s Miracle Network Celebration activities, as well as some play time in the parks.

A big thank you to Walmart Gander for doing such a beautiful job on the launch; to our past 2013/14 champion, Rebekah Winsor and her family for doing such a great job over the last year; to all those who took time from their busy day to attend the launch; and finally, to our NEW 2014/15 CHAMPION CHILD, BROOKE GIDGE and her family, who no doubt will represent us well.
