Each year the 170 Children’s Miracle Network hospitals provide the finest medical care, life-saving research and preventative education to help millions of kids overcome diseases and injuries of every kind. Headquartered in Salt Lake City, Utah, Children’s Miracle Network has grown dramatically since its founding in 1983, from a televised fund raiser in a small studio to one of the world’s leading children’s charities helping 17 million kids each year. The Children’s Miracle Network is dedicated to improving the health and welfare of all children by raising funds and awareness for the pediatric and neonatal programs of Baptist St. Anthony’s Hospital in Amarillo, Texas. All funds raised support the Texas Panhandle and the High Plains Region to purchase medical equipment, child life activities and educational resources.” The proceeds from the fundraisers will support the Borger Walmart’s efforts to raise funds for the Children’s Miracle Network campaign.
