2023 CMN Miracle Kid patients smiling and posing together

For more than 30 years, Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) Hospitals has raised funds nationally for more than 170 children’s hospitals, including Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta.

Fundraising efforts from CMN Hospitals in metro Atlanta and north Georgia directly benefit Children’s, reflecting CMN Hospitals’ pledge to keep 100% of donations in the local community. CMN Hospitals conducts thousands of corporate campaigns and hosts special events each year.

From IHOP Miracle Saturday to Dance Marathon, the CMN Hospitals team at Children’s and its many community partners offer patients and their families a variety of fun events that allow them to celebrate their Children’s journeys while also spreading the word about the importance of supporting pediatric hospitals.

Meet our 2023 Miracle Children

How many times have you wanted to shout from the rooftops what an amazing kid you have? How often does she or he inspire you with their determination, positive attitude and kind heart? If you had the opportunity, what would you tell the world about your child’s incredible accomplishments, their ability to live their best life in spite of illness or injury? How would you show your gratitude for the medical team that has been there for your family every step of the way?

The Children’s Foundation and Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals team wants to hear your story. Nominate your child (or a child near and dear to you) to become one of our Miracle Children.

Why Nominate a Miracle Child?

This is your opportunity to not only lift up a special kid, but also give back by pledging your commitment to spreading the word about the important work we do at Children’s.

Those chosen as Miracle Children and their families serve as ambassadors to Children’s and our Foundation, helping to generate awareness and support by participating in corporate and fundraising events throughout the year.

What Is a Miracle Family?

If your child is selected as a Miracle Child, you become a “miracle family.” It is a commitment for everyone involved. Here are some things to consider before you nominate a 2024 Miracle Child. Miracle families should:

  • Be flexible and dependable.
  • Be comfortable sharing their child’s story in front of groups of people, large or small, through video, print, photography and written stories.
  • Be open to appearing at events and with media.
  • Have reliable transportation in order to attend events; families are invited to attend approximately eight events annually primarily within the metro-Atlanta area and/or Children’s hospital locations.
  • Have received the majority of their care at Children’s within the last year, and currently be medically stable. 
  • Nominated child should be 2-17 years old.

Make the most of your child’s journey by inspiring other families experiencing similar challenges. Give back to the hospital you trusted with your child’s care. And feel the love and support from a community rallying behind your miracle child.

Dance Marathon is a nationwide event involving more than 450 high schools and colleges that raise money for CMN Hospitals. Participating students spend a year gaining leadership and nonprofit business experience, and fostering teamwork, while also raising awareness for their local CMN Hospital. The fundraising period culminates with a one-day celebration that lasts between eight and 40 hours. Students get to dance; enjoy entertainment, games and stories from Children’s patient families; and reveal their annual fundraising total.
