Children's Miracle Network Hospitals



Children's Miracle Network Hospitals (CMNH) was established nationally in 1983 to help children by actively supporting improved health care for millions of young people around the world. CMNH's mission is to generate funds and awareness programs for the benefit of children served by its associated hospitals, now numbering more than 170 nationwide.

Join Jennifer Lopez and ‘Put Your Money Where the Miracles Are’

Ministry Saint Joseph’s Children’s Hospital is joining Jennifer Lopez in asking north central Wisconsin to “Put Your Money Where the Miracles Are” to support Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.  Click here to learn more about this exciting new partnership!

There are three CMN Hospitals in the state of Wisconsin. Ministry Saint Joseph's Children's Hospital of Marshfield became a partner with CMN in 1989. And although CMNH is a nationally affiliated event, 100% of the funds raised locally stay in the North Central Wisconsin area to help provide programs, services and treatment for sick and injured children. Funds also are used to support programs that seek to prevent children's injuries, and promote healthy lifestyles in these communities. In addition, CMNH does not focus on any particular disease or injury - all children in North Central Wisconsin can benefit from the projects funded through CMNH. Finally, all overhead costs associated with the operation and production of CMNH are underwritten by local and national sponsors, enabling 100% of the contributions to be used for the purpose for which it was donated, to help kids.

Our local CMNH program involves 17 counties including: Adams, Ashland, Bayfield, Clark, Forest, Gogebic (UP), Iron, Langlade, Lincoln, Marathon, Oneida, Portage, Price, Sawyer, Taylor, Vilas and Wood. Funds are both raised and distributed within this 17-county area. If you would like to see how our funds have helped throughout this area, please check out our CMNH Fund Disbursement report.

Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals is a year-round fundraising and awareness campaign.

Contributions to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals benefit an array of pediatric programs and services and it impacts young lives battling virtually every type of childhood illness and injury. Whether investing in the life of a premature infant whose weight is measured in grams rather than ounces, or preserving the dreams of a teenager whose hopes are threatened by the malignancy of cancer, Children’s Miracle Network is dedicated to our most precious resource ~ the health and happiness of children in our area.

Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals is a unique organization that is committed to putting children first in all that is done.
