Last Friday, we took a short trip over to Indianapolis during our lunch break for a blanket drive. One of our teammate's brothers recently fought cancer and he started a blanket drive in Las Vegas to help keep fellow cancer patients warm. We were very honored to be able to continue his efforts here in Indianapolis for the Peyton Manning Children's Hospital at St. Vincents. In just over an hour, we collected 20 blankets and $240. The following day, we purchased 17 more blankets bringing our total to 37 blankets! A group of us were able to go to the Children's Hospital to deliver the blankets to the patients there. It was an incredibly fun, rewarding trip, being able to talk to the kids and brighten their days. We are quite thankful to be able to give back to our community!
Yesterday started the first official day of practice with all the other countries! It was super fun to be able to meet some of them at dinner last night! We'll be able to show our hospitality and get to know the other girls over the next 7 days. Competition begins on Wednesday; the time has come! It's here and we are READY!
