Making Miracles

Children's Miracle Network, Children's Hospital of Wisconsin, Disney, Speedway, Thanksgiving, miracles

My husband and I recently returned from a trip to Disney World.

But we wanted the experience of having seen what all the Disney fuss was about.

The perfect opportunity arose this year, courtesy of Children's Miracle Network. Hubby works for Speedway and the company has raised millions of dollars for the charity over the years. My husband's store raised so much themselves that he won a trip for two to Disney to celebrate with Children's Miracle Network and other corporate sponsors. This little charity that began with Marie Osmond and John Schneider (yep, Bo Duke) has grown into a network of support for 170 hospitals around the U.S. and the world.
