Batson Children's Hospital is a member of Children's Miracle Network Hospitals organization. Children's Miracle Network Hospitals' guiding principle is that 100 percent of the funds raised stay in the local community to benefit local children.
Children's Miracle Network Hospitals raises funds and awareness for 170 member hospitals that provide 32 million treatments each year to kids across the U.S. and Canada. Donations made through Children's Miracle Network Hospitals campaigns, programs and corporate partners stay local to fund critical treatments and healthcare services, pediatric medical equipment and charitable care. Since 1983, Children's Miracle Network Hospitals has raised more than $5 billion, most of it $1 at a time.
Whether it is corporate sponsors selling Miracle Balloon icons, listeners calling in pledges during Mississippi Miracles Radiothon each spring, or students holding Dance Marathons, thousands of dollars are generated each year to save and improve the lives of Mississippi's kids.
