Wabash child to serve as Riley hospital ambassador

Staff Report

Jace Randel, of Wabash, will be one of eight Indiana children welcomed Wednesday to serve as ambassadors for Riley Hospital for Children, according to a press release.

Riley Champions Presented by Kroger is a program that honors patients from Riley Hospital for Children at Indiana University Health who “have inspired communities with their bravery and commitment to helping others while navigating medical challenges.”

“These children serve as advocates and ambassadors for Riley by sharing their stories and participating in special events throughout the year,” stated the release.

Along with Randle, the 2020 class of Riley Champions includes Katherine Alderfer, of Winona Lake; Kylee Appman, of Gentryville; Britton Helmuth, of Harlan; Luke Jackson, of Bloomington; Ke’Mora McMiller, of Indianapolis; Sir Jonathan Thompson, of Indianapolis; and Addyson Wooldridge, of Lafayette.

The program is set to start at 10:20 a.m Wednesday at the chapel of Lakeland Christian Academy, 1093 S. 250 East, Winona Lake.

The location was chosen because it will be the first public recognition of Alderfer.

“This special presentation will allow Katherine’s school to honor her bravery and kick off her role,” stated the release.
