MRSA Youth Champion Award 2013
MRSA Survivors Network’s “MRSA Youth Champion Award 2013” given to Bethany Burke of Austin, TX
Bethany Burke, 18 of Austin, Texas attends Hyde Park High School and acquired CA-MRSA (community-acquired MRSA) and decided she needed to raise awareness and turn a negative experience into a positive one. She put together a fundraising campaign online using CrowdRise.com and produced her own amazing video to showcase her experience, to inspire other youth to get involved in the movement and raised $1,300 for MRSA Survivors Network. She is our 2013 “MRSA Youth Champion”.
