2015 Champion Child, Hans Gabriel
Today (Wednesday, October 15) our team at BC Children’s Hospital Foundation and Walmart Canada had the great pleasure of announcing Hans Gabriel Rana as our 2014/15 Champion Child. We hosted a celebration in Hans‘ honour, announcing his role as ambassador for BC Children's Hospital from now until the end of June. We’re so thrilled that you, and many others, will get to know Hans in this role, as he is one inspiring little boy.
"We are so grateful to have Walmart Canada sponsor the Champions program again this year and to be able to work closely with them throughout the year," said Teri Nicholas, president and CEO of BC Children's Hospital Foundation. "Their commitment through this program allows us to highlight remarkable kids, like Hans, each year as our hospital's ambassador, bringing much needed awareness to the cause and inspiring donations for sick children locally and across the country."
Hans and his family will have the amazing opportunity next month to fly to Toronto to meet up with 11 other Champion children representing Canada's pediatric hospitals. After some fun and great bonding time, these families will make their way south to Orlando, Florida, and most exciting, Walt Disneyworld! It is here that they will meet up with 50 American Champions and help to share the great work of children's hospitals across North America. A big shout out to Walmart Canada for making this amazing program possible.
