Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals has a 25-year history working with the Miss America Organization. The charity was officially named MAO's national platform in 2007. Since then, the partnership has raised more than $10 million, benefiting member CMN Hospitals across the U.S.
The partnership also extends to the women competing at local, state and national levels of the pageant, asking each contestant who participates to be responsible for raising funds and awareness on behalf of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and the Miss America Scholarship Program.
Miss America 2014 is Nina Davuluri. She dedicates a part of her year in service to discussing why local children's hospitals need charitable support and visiting member hospitals across the U.S.
