Since joining Children’s Health in 2017, Aracely Munoz has led the team and brought a strategic approach to CMN Hospitals fundraising. Aracely empowers everyone to fully activate around relationships and campaigns to increase the critical funds needed to ensure kids and families are supported. Under her leadership, the team has also reenergized their commitment to Dance Marathon and been at the forefront in Extra Life and Play Yellow fundraising.
