For 37 years, Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) Hershey has raised funds to support Penn State Health Children’s Hospital by providing life-saving equipment, family-centered programs and transformative research.
To help create a lifelong impact for patients and families at Penn State Health Children’s Hospital, CMN has established three endowments.

"I am so honored to be a recipient of this year’s award and I would like to thank you so much for opening up an opportunity for medical students to apply to an award that celebrates diversity in medicine.
I am a second-year medical student, finishing up my second year. As I transition to clerkships, I hope to practice culturally competent medicine and strive to promote diversity and inclusion into our health system. As someone who is interested in primary care, I envision myself caring for a diverse patient population and interacting with patients from marginalized communities on a daily basis.
Thank you again for your generous contribution to helping medical students. Speaking as someone from a low SES background who has a history of struggling academically in undergrad, due to familial obligations and a history of working part-time or full-time jobs while being a student, this scholarship means so much to me and I am grateful to have had the honor of being the recipient.
Support for these endowments can be made via a one-time or recurring gift, multi-year pledge commitment or other charitable gift plan. For more information about these endowments and how to ensure future generations of patients at Penn State Health Children’s Hospital continue receiving access to world-class care, contact CMN Director Danielle Sunday at [email protected] or 717-531-5692.
