It’s Miracle Weekend at CoxHealth!

Join the organization for the annual CoxHealth Medical Mile and the 2013 CMN Hospitals Telethon 

For more than 25 years, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals of CoxHealth has financially supported sick and injured Ozarks’ children and their families by helping with medically related travel expenses, medical equipment purchases and much more. Because CoxHealth underwrites all administrative expenses of the local CMN Hospitals office, 100 percent of all gifts and proceeds help children with medical needs right here in the Ozarks. 

This weekend, you can support CMN Hospitals of CoxHealth in two ways: 

· The 22nd annual CoxHealth Medical Mile and 5K Run/Walk is Saturday, June 1, beginning at 7 a.m. In addition to the races, we’ll have fun activities for the kids including games, inflatables and more. Packet pick-up is 7 a.m. – 7 p.m., Friday, May 31, but it’s not too late to sign up. Visit for registration details and information on event day registration as well. Proceeds benefit CMN Hospitals. 

· The 2013 CMN Hospitals Telethon is the public’s chance to become a part of the miracle. The telethon will air live on KY3 10:30 p.m. – Midnight, Saturday, June 1, and 8 am. – 5 p.m., Sunday, June 2. Broadcast from Cox South in Springfield, the telethon will feature the stories of many local children who have been helped by the charity. Last year the telethon raised $1,462,269. 

“We’re so appreciative of everyone who supports Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, whether it’s through these activities or the many events held throughout the year,” said Tim Siebert, executive director. “I want every individual and every corporate sponsor to know their donations truly make a lasting difference in the lives of so many children.”
