DULUTH, MN (Northland's NewsCenter) - The Gillette Children's Specialty Heathcare Clinic in Duluth Celebrated its 13th year today, proclaimed as "CurePity Day"

Duluth Mayor Don Ness made the proclamation.

The CurePity movement is based on the idea that children who have disabilities don't need pity. They need hope and world that gives them a chance.

As part of the event, the Duluth Area Chamber of Commerce presented the Duluth Clinic with a plaque for its service.

"They should always remember, particularly the politicians that they are just one car accident away from having the same needs as these children, adults experience every single day," said Kevin Murphy, MD.
