May is for Miracles
And you can be a part of it! More than a dozen North American outlets, thousands of retailer employees, and millions of supporters are dedicating the month of May to help sick and injured kids receiving treatment at Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.
Did you know that one in 10 kids in North America is treated by Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals each year? Our 170 hospitals rely on your local support to provide the absolute best in care for these kids. Your support goes to research and training, purchasing equipment, and paying for uncompensated care, all in support of our mission to save and improve the lives of as many kids as possible.
