Three 2016 U.S. Olympic Swimming Team Members to Visit Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston
WHO: 2016 Olympians Maya DiRado, Molly Hannis and Melanie Margalis
WHAT: In conjunction with the AT&T Winter National Championships in Atlanta this week, the three athletes will visit the patients of Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston. The athletes will pass out Joy Jars from the Jessie Rees Foundation’s Never Ever Give Up campaign and visit Seacrest Studios.
The Never Ever Give Up (NEGU) campaign was founded in honor of 12-year-old Jessie Rees, who lost her battle with cancer in January 2012. The Joy Jars are filled with goodies including crayons, games and their own gold medals for their bravery to bring smiles to critically ill children.
