Children's Miracle Network Hospitals has grown dramatically since its founding in 1983, but its goals have remained the same:

  • Save and improve the lives of as many children as possible by raising funds for children’s hospitals
  • Keep funds in the community in which they were raised, to help local kids

Today more than 170 hospitals worldwide, specializing in treating children, make up Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. A member since 1985, Prisma Health Children's Hospital—Midlands partners with national and local retailers and organizations in year round fundraising campaigns. All funds raised in our market, stay here to benefit our kids.

Special events such as the B106.7FM Children's Hospital Radiothon, University of South Carolina Dance Marathon and Little Miss South Carolina Pageant provide Children’s Hospital with new opportunities to share the Children’s Hospital story. Area businesses and organizations are invited to participate in the fundraising efforts by hosting your own event or selling miracle balloons.
