Champion Across America DC Trip - Day 2

This morning we attended a Welcome Breakfast at the ESPN Zone and it was awesome! This was the first time we got to meet the other Champion Kids and their families. We were greeted by cheering Walmart employees as we entered the ESPN Zone. Evan "hi-fived" them all on his way in! Miss America had breakfast at the table next to us - she took pictures with all the kids and sang "The Colors of the Wind" for everyone. Mark Wills, Country Singer, also came and sang to the kids. Walmart's executives also came and spoke about their current campaign to raise money for the Children's Miracle Network. Walmart has raised over $15 million with their current campaign in just 6 weeks! After the presentations, the kids played video games. Moira, Evan's sister, played ice hockey with Miss America - Moira won and she was so excited! After the ESPN Zone party, we went on a bus tour of DC with the other families. We went to the Lincoln, Jefferson and Vietnam Monuments. After the bus tour, we went to the Air and Space; Natural History and American History Museums. We had a great day!
