Since 1983, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals has raised more than $4.7 billion—most of it $1 at a time—for 170 children’s hospitals across the United States and Canada, which, in turn, use the money where it’s needed the most. The mission of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals is to generate funds and awareness programs for the benefit of children served by its member hospitals. The hallmark of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals is that 100% of funds raised in an area, stay in that area.

With over forty-five national partners making up a network of more than 1,200 partner locations throughout North Texas that directly benefits Children’s Medical Center.
