scholarship fund

NEW YORK, March 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Today CVS/pharmacy announced the Grand Prize winner and nine Finalists in the For All the Ways You Care contest, a nationwide search for inspirational stories of caring. The contest drew thousands of submissions from across the country.

Judy McAtee of Plano Center, IL, nominated by her husband Pat, was selected as the Grand Prize Winner and recipient of $25,000. Judy is a foster mother to over 30 children, and is a mother of 12 including 10 adopted children. Described by her husband as "the poster child for anything wise and caring," Judy has lovingly cared for children less fortunate, maintained a commitment to education, and formed an inter-racial adoption support group for families as well as "Special Gifts" seminars designed to share the experiences of foster care and adoption of special needs children.

"I was completely surprised that my husband submitted my story for the For All The Ways You Care contest. You don't consider your life as being noteworthy when you are living it and there are so many people who have great lives," Judy McAtee said. "The most exciting part of being named the winner is the potential to influence even one family or one person who is on the fence for adoption or considering adding to their family through adoption."

"Judy is a true inspiration and we are thrilled to honor her and each of our finalists today," said Larry Merlo, president of CVS/pharmacy. "We were astounded by the response to the For All The Ways You Care Campaign and the incredible stories of caring it brought forth. Our finalists represent a wide range of caring,
