Patient Ambassadors of the Parkway Run & Walk have a big job to do. It’s up to them to represent the thousands of children diagnosed with pediatric cancers each year. As they share their stories, they help the world understand what childhood cancer takes away and why it’s worth supporting institutions like Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. This year’s Parkway Run & Walk Ambassador pages are proudly presented by the Chapman Auto Stores.
