Zendaya, star of Disney Channel’s “Shake It Up,” rode down Main Street U.S.A., on Thursday, Oct. 10 in Magic Kingdom Park at the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida as Grand Marshal of the “Celebrate A Dream Come True” Parade. Zendaya was joined by three of 68 children known as the 2013 Champions of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
The Children’s Miracle Network is a charity that raises funds and awareness for 170 pediatric centers. This week, the Champions and their families are meeting at Walt Disney World for CMN Hospitals’ 30th anniversary Celebration event, hosted by co-founders Marie Osmond and John Schneider. Sixty-eight children from the U.S. and Canada are spending a week in Florida and Washington DC, telling media, lawmakers and some of the largest North American companies how local donations changed their lives thanks to a children’s hospital.
