On January 14th, the Janeway Children’s Hospital Foundation and Walmart Canada announced the 2020 Janeway Children’s Miracle Network Champion Child.

Our 2020 Champion is Quinn Shmiedendorf, a 12 year old from Middle Cove.

As the Janeway’s Champion, Quinn will have the opportunity to travel to Orlando, FL, representing Newfoundland and Labrador’s sick and injured Janeway children during Children’s Hospitals Week. There they will meet with Champion children of all ages from across Canada and the United States.

The launch occurred at Walmart in Mount Pearl with her family, friends and classmates from MacDonald Drive Junior High.

Last year’s Champion, Sammi-Jo Mackenzie James, passed on the Champion trophy to Quinn.

We will share Quinn’s story on the Janeway Children’s Miracle Network Telethon, broadcasting live on NTV June 6 and 7, 2020.

Children’s Hospitals Week Canada is made possible by the generosity of Presenting Sponsor, Walmart Canada; and Official Airline Sponsor, the Air Canada Foundation.
