Every minute, 62 children enter a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital. No matter the reason — whether it is a terminal illness, dramatic injury or a child in need of long-term care — that number equates to approximately one child every second.

Second, the charity wants to keep the funds raised in the community that helped raise them — to help local children.
