Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals of Greater Kansas City
$75,821 raised at the 2018 Minutes for Miracles Radiothon!!
On December 6, 2018, Cumulus Media dedicated not only air time but their passion and voices in sharing with the Kansas City community the amazing care that is being given to children and their families who are treated at KU Medical Center. Many of our CMN families shared very personal letters to their child's diagnosis expressing anger, hurt and often time the hopelessness it has caused them. However, among that pain were milestones of triumph for every family because of the care they have received at KU Medical Center. The goal was to inspire listeners to give so that more kids can experience their own victory over an illness that has already taken so much. Kansas City responded with amazing generosity by raising $75,821!! Thank You!! We would also like to thank our friends at Cumulus Media for their hard work and their dedication to making a difference.

PetSmart Brings Smiles to Pediatric Patients
PetSmart in Belton made the holidays a little more merry for the pediatric patients seen in the clinics at the University of Kansas Health System this year thanks to their generous customers and the furry, friendly faces of four plush toys named Chance, Lucky, Dream and Hope. These huggable animals are part of PetSmart's holiday philanthropic collection and are an exclusive line created for shoppers to purchase. They can then donate that same toy to an in-store toy drive, where the cuddly toys are donated to help bring a little extra joy to local kids. The Belton location has chosen to donate the plush toys to Children's Miracle Network at KU Medical Center, helping to brighten the days of many kids over the last two years.
Thank you to the Belton PetSmart team!
