Curling athletes visit Madonna Omaha Campus patients

Curling athletes visit Madonna Omaha Campus patients

The unique sport of curling has taken over Omaha, including Madonna’s Omaha Campus.

On Wednesday, Aug. 23, members of the U.S. curling teams visited, spending time in the pediatric unit and doing demonstrations for our other units.

The athletes are competing against teams from Japan, Scotland and China in a 3-day event at the Baxter Arena called Curling Night in America, which will later be broadcast on NBC Sports Network.

A special thank you to these athletes for taking the time for this special experience:

Jamie Sinclair
Alex Carlson
Vicky Persinger
Monica Walker
Heath McCormick
Korey Dropkin
Tom Howell

The local media also featured Marilyn Knurck and her daughter, who is recovering from a traumatic brain injury, in their coverage of the visit.
