Community Standards

Every day, supporters of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals raise funds for 170 children’s hospitals that support the health of 10 million kids each year across the U.S. and Canada. People fundraise through a diverse roster of local and national corporate partnerships and signature initiatives like Dance Marathon, and Extra Life and legacy events like Radiothon. Recognizing how important it is for our supporters to feel safe and empowered to improve the health of all children, we’ve developed a set of Community Standards that outline what is and is not allowed on our websites, social media platforms and other digital platforms. If you encounter any violations of these Community Standards please contact us here. Thank you for being a part of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals communities and for doing your part to maintain a fun and safe space for everyone.


Through inclusive communities, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals (CMN Hospitals) strives to engage donors, advocates, influencers, and celebrities to change kids’ health and change the future. When we fund children’s hospitals, we transform how we meet the most urgent needs, saving more lives and protecting our collective future. To accomplish this, we ask all community members to participate in a way that promotes a positive, friendly, and welcoming experience for everyone.


We value respect and a spirit of hope. We do not tolerate discrimination, intolerance, bullying, harassment, intimidation, stalking, following, aggression, abusive language/behaviors, photography, or recording used to harass, or ill-will of any kind at any CMN Hospitals (or its programs) virtual or in-person events, or when communicating on any of our digital platforms including but not limited to our websites, blogs, and social media accounts. This includes content or activity that promotes or encourages denigration or violence based on the following protected characteristics: race, ethnicity, color, caste, national origin, immigration status, religion, sex, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, medical condition, and veteran status.

Changing kids’ health to change the future is our utmost priority and community space is provided to assist donors, advocates, influencers, and celebrities with their fundraising efforts. Topics not related to children’s healthcare or what members and/or members’ local communities are doing to help change kids’ health to change the future should take place elsewhere, outside our platforms.

Community members who do not adhere to our Community Standards may be subject to consequences including but not limited to warnings, temporary muting or removal and/or permanent removal from community spaces. If you encounter a potential infraction, please report it to We will take action if Community Standards have been violated.


Be alert and report any discriminatory, harassing, aggressive, or exclusionary behavior or speech towards you or someone else to CMN Hospitals staff immediately. You may email or contact staff moderators, where available. In the event of an emergency, please contact local authorities.


Self-promotion unrelated to CMN Hospitals or its brands, spam and irrelevant links are not allowed.

Keep in mind as to how you are responding to rulings, mods, admins, or Extra Life staff in this group and on other public platforms. Disrespect and purposeful negativity will be reviewed seriously and actioned upon if necessary.
