(INDIANAPOLIS) - Six current and former Riley Children's Hospital patients will act as statewide ambassadors for the hospital.

The new Riley champions program will recognize patients for showing courage in facing down their illness, and send them around the state to tell their stories.

They participated in the opening coin flip before the Colts-Texans game on Sunday.

Colts owner Jim Irsay, Indianapolis Motor Speedway President Tony George And Pacers Sports and Entertainment President Jim Morris presented all six with certificates at the annual Riley Children's Foundation luncheon in Indianapolis.
