Last week, we celebrated Children’s Hospital Week in honor of the over 10 million brave children who enter a CMN Hospital every year.
Now, more than ever, we must remember that #KidsCantWait. The millions of children already in a hospital cannot wait for a cure, the curve to flatten, or an economic boost, so it is up to us-those who are lucky enough to wait, to do our part. By simply staying home, we are saving lives during the Covid-19 pandemic.
I am so grateful the Miss America’s Outstanding Teen Organization has given me the platform to advocate for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. If school were still in session, I would be busy working with administrators, teachers, and fellow student council members to plan our Dance-a-thon fundraiser for Boston Children’s that was scheduled to take place in only a few weeks. Just because we can’t hold our even doesn’t mean we can’t help. Do your part and stay home for those who can’t.
