Starlight All-Star Michelle Carter
American shot putter, and current Olympic women's champion, Michelle Carter, is excited bring joy and comfort to hospitalized kids with Starlight Children's Foundation.
In 2018, the Olympic Gold Medalist partnered with Starlight to help us deliver our fun, comfy and colorful Starlight Gowns and launch our first-ever Design-a-Gown campaign by doing arts and crafts with hospitalized kids to design their own Starlight Gowns.
"Hospital visits with Starlight has to be one of the most rewarding experiences I've been a part of. I'm proud to join this group of All-Stars to help kids have a more positive experience in hospitals across the U.S."
