Children's Miracle Network Family Boot Camp

Participants in the “Sweat for a Miracle” event will get to visit various aerobic exercise stations, including running, jumping rope and ladder drills. The event, spearheaded by Shelley Collins, M.D., pediatric hospital medicine division chief and CMN radiothon team captain, is open to the public, will also feature awards, giveaways and unique photo opportunities for the entire family.
