A little over a month ago, Magee invited all patients and former patients to share photos of themselves engaging in activities they never thought they would be able to do again after their illness or injury for our first Believe in a Way Back Photo Contest. The photos and stories we received were incredible – truly.
At the end of Round 1, the top 8 contestants moved on to Round 2, and those top 8 were narrowed down to the Final Four! The two photos with the most votes by noon on Monday, July 22 will move on to the Finals, where a big prize is on the line. The runner-up will be featured here on the believe@Magee blog. The grand prize winner will receive a Magee swag bag and, more importantly, have an opportunity to tell their story in the Fall 2013 edition of Magee’s Can Do magazine. Two great prizes, only one winner!
Now’s your chance to meet our Final Four: Bryn, Josh, Jim and Melissa. To vote for your favorite, simply click the link with their name and like the photo on Facebook. Don’t forget to cast your vote by noon on Monday, July 22!
