HOW CMN HELPS
Children's Miracle Network (CMN) was established nationally in 1983 to help children
by actively supporting improved health care for millions of young people around the world.
CMN'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.
There are three CMN Hospitals in the state of Wisconsin. Saint Joseph's
Children's Hospital of
Marshfield became a partner with CMN in 1989. And although CMN 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, CMN does not focus on any particular disease
or injury - all children in North Central Wisconsin can benefit from the projects funded
through CMN. Finally, all overhead costs associated with the operation and production of
CMN 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 CMN 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.

entertainment, dramatic miracle stories and donor recognition highlights the fundraising
year. There is also a 3-day radiothon, hosted by WYTE, that is broadcast in
