Brynn - BMW Dallas Marathon Patient Champion

Since 2007, the Patient Champion program has enlisted Scottish Rite Hospital patients to help encourage
and cheer on runners in the BMW Dallas Marathon. This program is a way to highlight some of the wonderful kids the marathon generously supports each year. We’re excited to introduce you to Brynn!

Brynn, age 15, of Midlothian, has been a patient at Scottish Rite Hospital since the summer of 2015 when she began receiving treatment for her slipped capital femoral epiphysis (SCFE). This hip condition impacts the femur and hip of growing pre-teen and teens. Our physicians in the Center for Excellence in Hip conduct groundbreaking research to determine the best treatment plan for each patient with a hip condition.

The distinct, iconic “Scottish Rite Hospital popcorn smell” that greets guests of the hospital is not lost on Brynn. She counts the signature popcorn smell as one of her favorite parts of Scottish Rite Hospital. Brynn also loves the happy environment and helpful staff.

Spending time with her family and friends is one of Brynn’s favorite activities. Her loved ones help to encourage and cheer Brynn on not only in her favorite sport, volleyball, but in everything she sets out to accomplish in life.

Brynn’s doctors and caretakers have become experts in caring for children. Brynn’s dream is to become an expert caretaker for patients who are a little furrier than those at Scottish Rite Hospital. With dreams of becoming a veterinarian, she'll be able to put "smiling faces" on the animals she's caring for. 

We invite you to join our team of fundraisers on behalf of Patient Champions like Brynn and all the patients of Scottish Rite Hospital through our marathon fundraising page
