Throughout the years, Kiwanis International has made children happier and healthier by helping millions of kids be able to enjoy better lives. One of the ways Kiwanis helps is through contributions to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Since Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals first broadcast in 1983, Kiwanis has donated more than US$36 million to help make miracles happen for local sick and injured kids. Kiwanis leaders encourage clubs to continue supporting communities and children by contributing to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.

About Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals

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 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 through the charity’s Miracle Balloon icon. Its various fundraising partners and programs support the nonprofit’s mission to save and improve the lives of as many children as possible.

To ensure children’s hospitals have the resources they need, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals’ partners like Kiwanis conduct thousands of special events and grassroots fundraisers year-round. Circle K and Key Clubs hold Dance Marathons to help generate millions of dollars each year to provide the best care available to the tiniest of patients. The partnership continues to provide service and fundraising opportunities to both organizations.
