Special Guests to Deliver Blizzards to CSH Patients on Wednesday

Each year, internationally known Paralympian, motivational speaker and celebrity spokesperson, Josh Sundquist, reveals his newest one-legged costume inspiration. This year, it’s a Dairy Queen Blizzard, in honor of Miracle Treat Day on July 27, benefitting Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.

This year’s costume features the beloved frozen treat upside-down, with the iconic red DQ spoon as Josh’s one leg. Josh’s past creations include the iconic “Fragile” fishnet-ensconced lamp from “A Christmas Story,” a Gingerbread Man with his leg unceremoniously bitten off, a Foosball Player, and – just last year –Lumière from “Beauty and the Beast.”

A past Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals patient, Josh has dedicated himself to brightening the days of others, including patients at Children’s Specialized in New Brunswick. Declared free of cancer at age 13, Josh started ski racing three years later. He is a bestselling author and has spoken across the world to groups ranging from Fortune 500 companies, to schools, and even at the White House. He competed on the U.S. Paralympic Ski Team during the 2006 Turino Paralympics, and currently represents the United States in international competition as a member of the U.S. Amputee Soccer Team.

During his visit, Josh will be sporting his new Blizzard costume, and will be accompanied by Miss Columbus Day Olivia Michael (pictured below), a local titleholder in the Miss America Organization, having placed as first runner-up to Miss New Jersey in 2017 & 2016. Through her platform “Arts for Everyone, Olivia has hosted arts & crafts nights at PSE&G Children’s Specialized Hospital.  Olivia was the recipient of the 2014 Children’s Miracle Network Miracle Maker Award.

Josh and Olivia will be handing out Blizzards to patients and families at Children’s Specialized Hospital.
