Rochester residents, Beth Bromund and her daughter Elise, are gathering family and friends to join them at the Walk for Miracles on June 10. This will be the first time that the family has participated in this fundraising event for Beaumont Children’s, a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital.

Elise, age 7, and her family have benefitted from the programs of the Children’s Miracle Network at Beaumont Children’s. “Elise has benefited so much from medical care at Beaumont. She has had multiple surgeries and medical tests,” said Beth Bromund. “Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals have helped make her stays more pleasant, and I know that the program has purchased some special pediatric equipment that Elise has benefited from. They also purchased the chairs that pull out to become twin-size beds for parents to comfortably spend the night on to stay with their sick child.”

Elise is the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals Champion for the State of Michigan. She is looking forward to dressing up as one of her favorite characters, Elsa or Anna from Frozen.

Walkers are encouraged to dress as their favorite superhero character. Children will meet Super Beau, the Beaumont Children’s mascot bear, and other popular fairy tale and comic book heroes. Each child will receive a super hero cape.

Breakfast and refreshments are included with your registration. In addition, everyone will be able to enjoy the Kids Craft Corner and exciting exhibits at the Detroit Zoo, including the Polk Penguin Conservation Center. Zookeepers will also be at various animal exhibits to answer questions and share information.

Walkers must register for the event and make a minimum donation: $20 per adult and $5 per child ages 3 to 14. Children 2 and under are free. Walk registration also includes same-day family admission to the Detroit Zoo. Additional fundraising is encouraged. All proceeds will support nonprofit pediatric programs throughout Beaumont Children’s. To register in advance, visit or call 248-551-3607.
