UMC Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) is hosting a month-long fundraiser called Month of Miracles to raise money to continue to provide the latest technology in a healing environment at UMC Children’s Hospital.

How can my business raise money?

Here are some things that we have seen do well in the past. Note this isn’t a comprehensive list of what could be done. Get creative! Afterall, it’s for the kids!

  • Sell CMN balloon icons (which we can provide) and display with the donor’s name
  • Set canisters out for people to drop their change in.
  • Have a “Miracle” Jeans Day and sell the privilege to wear jeans to work
  • Host a cook-off, bake sale/competition, pancake lunch, etc.
  • Competitive games – golf tournament, kickball competition, talent show, trivia game, softball or volleyball tournaments, etc.

In the last year, over 14,000 pediatric patients sought care in the UMC Children’s Emergency Center— with over 6,500 of those being admitted to UMC Children’s Hospital and 94 being treated in the Timothy J. Harnar Regional Burn Center. And 656 neonatal patients were admitted to the ICU with a 99% survival rate. By participating in Month of Miracles, you have a direct hand in seeing the children of our region go home healthy because 100% of the funds raised stay right here!
