NJ CMN Team Hosts 4th Annual Miracle Summit!




On April 1st, 2019 the New Jersey CMN team hosted their 4th annual Miracle Summit! National CMN Partners all gathered at the Bridgewater Marriot to network, share best practices, celebrate 2018 achievements, and plan for 2019. One of the most memorable additions to our Summit, was the official announcement of our 2019 NJ Miracle Champion, Alexis Simon! Alexis has a testimony of a champion, surviving a traumatic brain injury and now chasing her Broadway dreams.


Kelli Davis,  Senior Director of Celebrity Relations for CMN, joined us as this year’s guest speaker. Kelli shared with our guests about her CMN journey and her book, “The Miracle Of Maverick.” Our lunch presentation was incredibly moving, filled with several presenters sharing patient stories, celebrating all partnerships, and leaving everyone a little more inspired.


Throughout the event, the NJ CMN team recognized all of the extraordinary partners who show their support in fundraising and spreading awareness for Children’s Specialized Hospital.  Listed below are the partners who were highlighted for all of their hard work and dedication during the Miracle Award Ceremony.
