Children's Miracle Network Hershey again earns national recognition

Children's Miracle Network at Penn State Children's Hospital was presented with two national awards at the recent CMN Hospitals conference in Orlando. For the ninth straight year, the Children's Miracle Network Hershey program was awarded the highest fundraising award ($4,649,890) and highest amount raised per capita ($2.56) for CMN Hospitals serving a population of 1-3 million people.

Children's Miracle Network has raised more than $61 million to support family-centered care programs, equipment and research at Penn State Children's Hospital since 1984.

Also at the conference, Nipsey, Jen Shade and Earl David Reed of The People's Morning Show on WQXA-FM 105.7 “The X” were presented with the 2016 English Radio Personalities of the Year award by CMN Hospitals for their tremendous support of CMN Hershey through the annual People's Pay 4 Play, which has raised $1.2 million in 10 years. During this 28-hour marathon event, listeners make donations to hear song requests.

“These awards would not be possible without the generous support of thousands of individuals, businesses and community groups. Thank you for giving patients at Penn State Children's Hospital the gift of growing up,” said Danielle Sunday, director of Children's Miracle Network Hershey.
