On Monday afternoon, we officially announced that Kelsey is the South Dakota CMN Champion!
A few family members were there along with a good sized crowd of Walmart employees. They had a huge cake with Kelsey's picture and Tootsie Rolls- one of Kelsey's favorite candies!
Kelsey's favorite part was passing out the cake. She loves being a helper! Even MORE than eating cake!
Mark, our store manager was there and after informing the group of just how much Walmart cares about our community, they presented our family with a gift card to use to prepare for our trip! What a huge surprise! We have no idea how we will spend it yet, but as avid Walmart shoppers, I'm sure we'll find a way!
I was so happy to hear that our Walmart store has been a huge support of Children's Miracle Network. I think Mark said that they donated about $29,000 just last year. Awesome!
I want to extend a warm THANK YOU to Walmart stores and their employees for making Kelsey (as well as the rest of our family) feel very special!!
We are very excited to share our experience with you!
