Global Citizen named CMN hospitals WA State Champion

Global’s own Junior Citizen, Lauren, has been selected to represent Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals as the Washington State 2016/2017 Champion. As Champion, she will go on the ambassador tour to Washington DC this June and Disney World early next year.


Last February, Lauren was rushed to Sacred Heart Children’s Hospital in severe DKA, a life-threatening condition resulting from the body’s inability to make insulin. She was diagnosed with the auto-immune disease Type 1 Diabetes (formerly known as juvenile diabetes) with a 10% chance of survival. After three weeks of pediatric intensive care and a week of rehabilitation, Lauren walked out of the hospital.


Lauren will be “working” as an ambassador all year helping spread awareness and fundraise for CMNH. She has been asked to be the Miracle Kid speaker at the North Idaho CU League, CUs for Kids Breakfast in May and at the NWCUA CUs for Kids Dinner Auction during the Annual Meeting in October. She will be featured on the KXLY Give 4 Kids media-thon May 5-6. Global is proud to be a Giggle Break sponsor.

Lauren is the daughter of Global’s VP of Marketing & Strategy and has been a member since 2007. For more information on CMN and Miracle Kids, click here.
