Sanford International names Holly Huntimer
2024 Sanford Children’s Hospital Ambassador
 

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – The Sanford International has named Holly Huntimer of Sioux Falls, the 2024 Sanford Children’s Hospital Ambassador. Huntimer will represent the Sanford Children’s Hospital at tournament events throughout the year.

When Huntimer was 5 years old, she was diagnosed with parameningeal rhabdomyosarcoma, an aggressive form of cancer. Scans revealed that she had a tumor about the size of a lime inside the soft tissue of her cheek on the right side of her face. Holly began chemotherapy and is now in remission. She still receives IVIG infusions at the Sanford Children’s Hospital and has routine scans to monitor any changes.

“Holly has fought so hard in her young life. She is truly a champion, and we are honored to have her play such a meaningful role with us – not only during Tournament Week, but throughout the entire year,” said Davis Trosin, tournament director of the Sanford International. “The Sanford Children’s Hospital Ambassador program is a way for us to honor a special person each year and highlight the care teams that change the lives of children and their families every day.”

Huntimer is the eighth Sanford Children’s Hospital Ambassador, joining Jaxon and Jeren Scheff (2018), Avery Hill (2019), Ben Wieman (2020), Cobey DeSchepper (2021), Sam Matheson (2022) and Landyn Keiser (2023).
