Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia • Lissencephaly
Juvenile Diabetes • Spina Bifida
These and so many other rare diseases, syndromes and afflictions are what children and families in our area face every day. Regardless of insurance coverage, there are expenses that simply must be paid out of pocket. These expenses may seem insurmountable to a family struggling to make ends meet.
Every day Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals treat:
• 16,200 kids with trauma
• 935 kids with diabetes
• 2,128 kids with cancer
• 2,329 kids for surgeries
• 925 babies in NICU
More than 10 million kids enter a children’s hospital across North America every year. These hospitals rely on donations and community support, as Medicaid and insurance programs do not fully cover the cost of care. Since 1983, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals (CMNH) have helped fill those funding gaps by raising more than $5 billion, most of it $1 at a time through the generosity of people just like you!
Our CPC family alone has had two children of team members who have relied on CMNH for their care. One of these children became a CMNH Champion, the other a CMNH Hero. As an adult and young adult, both kids continue to share their story and act as ambassadors for the program.
With just one event on one day over the past 28 years, our golf tournament that has raised over $200,000, but that only scratches the surface of the needs of kids in our area. Last year, with your help, we were able to send Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals a check for $14,000+. We hope we can count on you to help make our impact on the kids and their families even bigger this year!
We look forward to having you join us for our 2020 golf outing on Monday, June 8, 2020. Check in from 12:30 p.m. to 1:15 p.m. – shotgun start at 1:30 p.m.
