Children's Miracle Network Hospitals' Royal Start
And speaking of experiences, the alliance kicked off in royal fashion at the start of the half marathon with CMN Hospitals inviting a real princess to the party, 2014 Miss America Nina Davuluri. The Miss America Organization has a long relationship with CMN Hospitals. Miss America serves as the National Goodwill Ambassadors for the network and spends her year in service advocating for 170 member hospitals, all of which provides life-saving care, equipment and research.
At the start of the half marathon Davuluri took the stage to talk about the great work CMN Hospitals does for kids across North America and to wish runners luck before sending them off to Cinderella Castle. She was also at the finish line to greet runners home. When asked who the real princesses were that morning, she said the ones out on the road running!
