Children's Miracle Network Hospitals
Each year, millions of kids require the kind of specialized care that only a children’s hospital can provide. There is a significant funding gap in children’s healthcare across the United States, which is why these hospitals must rely on donations and community support. CMN Hospitals is there helping to raise the critical funds necessary to ensure our member hospitals can provide holistic, best-in-class care for kids and their families.
Children's Miracle Network Hospitals® raises funds for 170 children’s hospitals that support the health of 10 million kids each year across the U.S. and Canada. Donations go to local hospitals to fund critical life-saving treatments and healthcare services, along with innovative research, vital pediatric medical equipment, child life services that put kids’ and families’ minds at ease during difficult hospital stays and financial assistance for families who could not otherwise afford these health services. When we improve the health of all children and allow them the opportunity to reach their full potential, we also improve our communities for years to come. Together, we can change kids’ health. Together, we can change the future. To learn about Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and your local children’s hospital, visit cmnhospitals.org.
Donations help kids like Aubrey.
Aubrey was born with Down syndrome. The vital services she receives at her children’s hospital help remove barriers, empowering Aubrey to reach her fullest potential. Since birth, her local children’s hospital has supported her though physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy as a child living with Down syndrome. Her parents, Holly and Brad, are greatly appreciative of the care Aubrey receives. She continues to see specialists in otolaryngology, endocrinology, and ophthalmology. Donations to Aubrey’s children’s hospital have helped support a new expansion of surgical suites and clinical care to ensure all children are able to receive the care they need. Aubrey radiates positive energy and never shies away from the spotlight. Today, Aubrey advocates for the charitable need of children’s hospitals across the United States, including through her own lemonade stand.
The Life Time Foundation
When children are well nourished and take part in safe, fun, enriching physical activity, their minds and bodies can flourish. But for too many of our children, the opposite is true—lack of proper nutrition and activity puts them at risk of chronic physical, cognitive and socio-emotional disease. This reality is simply unacceptable.
Life Time Foundation focuses on sustainable, impactful change in two main areas:
1. Nutrition. We collaborate with school food leaders to help them serve wholesome, nourishing, minimally processed food in schools across the country.
2. Movement. We partner with schools and community organizations nationwide to get kids moving—supporting these organizations as they make long-term, sustainable progress toward building healthier futures for the kids they serve.
As of Winter 2022, Life Time Foundation partners with 35 public school districts to impact more than 1.7 million children in 3,634 schools across the country. On the Movement side, our two pilot grants funded trail development in Leadville, Colo., and provided bikes for public schools in Emporia, Kan. Since Life Time covers all of our operational costs, every cent of every dollar contributed by you directly supports programs and grant making.
