RAPID CITY, S.D. (JUNE 14, 2021) – Donors, sponsors and supporters alike came together on Friday, June 11, to help make miracles happen for Monument Health’s youngest patients. This year’s event raised $96,312, surpassing last year’s total and the goals set by the Monument Health Foundation.
Mediathon is a yearly campaign that benefits the Children’s Miracle Network program at Monument Health.
Throughout the day, HomeSlice Media Group Radio Stations – 93.9 The Mix, KAT 98.7, The FOX 100.3, 104.7 The Cowboy and Hot 93.1 – along with NewsCenter1, presented miracle stories featuring children from the area. Along with these stories, Monument Health caregivers spoke about how families in our region benefit from community support through donations to Children’s Miracle Network at Monument Health.
“We are very grateful for the support of every individual and organization who chose to give to this year’s Mediathon campaign. These are trying times, and we appreciate that our donors understand that kids can’t wait. They need our help now more than ever,” said Shawn Powers, Program Manager, Children’s Miracle Network.
“Monument Health works wonders daily for children. But even small wonders don’t come easily. They require life-saving equipment and the skills of doctors and nursing staff dedicated to caring for all children. Children’s Miracle Network at Monument Health helps to provide such vital equipment for children in this region,” he added.
Children’s Miracle Network works to fund medical equipment, services and programs for ill and injured children. The hospital’s Pediatrics Unit, Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and Advanced Care Pediatrics are just a few of the areas that benefit from community support.
Every dollar raised through Mediathon and Monument Health Foundation’s fundraising efforts stays local, helping our Black Hills communities. Visit monument.health/cmn to donate to the Children’s Miracle Network program at Monument Health.
