An inspiring child from every state was honored by Children's Miracle Network Hospitals during the 2012 Champions Medals Ceremony on Friday.
Media mogul Nick Cannon hosted the charity’s event, along with performances by Jordin Sparks (performing her song “Faith” and “Celebrate” from Whitney Houston’s final film, Sparkle) and Laura Kaeppeler, Miss America 2012 and CMN Hospitals National Ambassador.
Cannon was also on hand to announce a new collaboration between Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and Kuboo.com, a safe online community for kids ages four to 11. The site, which launches early next month, will allow for the 2012 Champion ambassadors — and any kid admitted to a Children Miracle Network Hospital — a free registration and subscription to Kuboo.com.
CMN Hospitals’ Champions serve as yearlong ambassadors for their hospital, state and the millions of kids helped by the charity’s locally raised funds. The Champions’ week included a visit to the White House to meet President Obama, and a chartered 767 to Disney World courtesy of this year’s program sponsor, Delta Air Lines.
