10-year-old Lily Baker of Adams Elementary is an ACE all-star and will serve as a national patient ambassador to raise awareness about the work of the Children's Miracle Network.
This February, Lily, her family, and her teacher attended a red carpet event at the Children's Village that celebrated her welcome to the Ace community. As the tenth selection, Baker secured a $10,000 donation to the MultiCare Yakima Memorial Hospital in her honor. As an All-Star, she’ll continue to share her story and help raise funds for the hospital.
On March 16th, Lily will be participating in the Mr. IKE pageant as a miracle child.
"I'm so excited for Lily. She has been instrumental in the mentor/mentee program at Adams and a perfect example of the school's inclusive practices," says Doug Kaplicky, Principal at Adams Elementary.
