Two Brothers Heading to Washington D.C. For Champions Across America

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash. -- Two brothers from Yakima are going to Washington D.C. to represent Children's Miracle Network at Champions Across America where they will help raise awareness of the services provided by children's hospitals.

Jake and Drew Lynch were honored during an assembly at their school today.

     

The two boys are the first brothers to be chosen as the two ambassadors from any state in the country. They were chosen because of the similar form of autism they both share and the many obstacles they've faced in their young lives.

    

Both children receive services at children's village in Yakima.

"I'm more excited than anything. This is going to be the best day of my life when I go over there, said Jake Lynch.

The boys are also being treated with a trip to Disney World. Representatives from Children's Miracle Network also surprised the boys with travel bags full of cameras and fun items to take along on their trip.
