Month of Miracles is an exciting fundraising event for UMC’s Children’s Miracle Network to be held for the month of August.
UMC Children’s Hospital and Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) have been partners for 37 years, raising over $22 million to provide the latest treatment and technology to kids of the South Plains and Eastern New Mexico. 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.
Being a CMN hospital means UMC is providing the best care to our pediatric patients. 100% of your donation stays right here. The ongoing need for support of pediatric education and therapeutic programs, as well as the ever-changing specialized pediatric medical equipment needs have become increasingly vital. This is YOUR chance to help the children of our region! By participating in the Month of Miracles, your business or organization will help more children and their families win at life! Thank you for helping us help the kids! Because of you, the “Miracles” will continue to happen.
Month of Miracles is an exciting fundraising event for UMC’s Children’s Miracle Network to be held for the month of August. Local businesses will fundraise the entire month and all donations will directly benefit UMC Children’s Hospital and CMN.
