Together, we raised $336,556!

THANK YOU for helping us to raise an incredible $336,556 during the 39th Annual Telethon! We are grateful for the continued support of our community, donors, volunteers, sponsors, Miracle Families, and of course, our television partner, WGAL!

Throughout the week, Telethon featured the stories of children who have received life-saving care at Penn State Health Children’s Hospital, followed by a one-hour finale special. All gifts made during Telethon will support life-saving equipment, vital patient programs, and transformative research.

Among the children featured was Miracle Child Benjamin of Harrisburg, PA. When Benjamin was born four weeks early, doctors quickly realized that his lungs were in trouble. He was transported by a CMN-funded pediatric ambulance to Penn State Health Children's Hospital, which had the specialized ventilator needed to save his life.

Telethon's impact

The 38th annual Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) Telethon raised $366,819 to benefit equipment, programs, and research at Penn State Health Children’s Hospital. The event aired June 6-9, 2022 on WGAL8.

“We truly appreciate all those who chose to donate to CMN,” said Valerie Hester, whose children, Xander and Savannah, were featured in the broadcast. The Hester siblings receive care for severe gastrointestinal issues and other conditions. The funds raised from Telethon will support child life, care, and research for kids like them.
