Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals

Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals (CMNH) is the alliance of premier children’s hospitals. Every year, CMNH treat 17 million children for every disease and injury imaginable. CMNH impact the lives of more children than any other children's organization in the world.

A member of CMNH since 1984, Upstate Golisano Children’s Hospital receives tremendous support from retail partners across the region. Through a wide array of fundraising campaigns and events, these community-minded companies positively impact the lives of sick and injured children through support of Upstate’s pediatric programs and services. 

Of note, in January 2019, through its longtime partnership with CMNH, the Upstate Foundation extended its fundraising efforts for Upstate Golisano Children’s Hospital into New York’s Southern Tier, reflecting the number of children seeking care at the Children’s Hospital from Broome, Chenango, Delaware and Tioga counties.

In partnership with iHeartMedia’s Y94 and NewsRadio 570 WSYR, the 16th annual Radiothon for Kids broke all previous records, raising $250,000 over two days! Joined by CNY Central, the event was broadcast live from Upstate University Hospital’s downtown location. The Upstate Foundation is grateful for the tireless efforts of on-air hosts, countless volunteers, generous corporate sponsors, patients and families who shared their stories, and the 1,270 donors who called in their gifts – all committed to supporting the important mission of Upstate Golisano Children’s Hospital.

Leveraging the vitality and positivity of college students, additional funding was garnered through CMNH dance marathons held on campuses across Central New York. Binghamton University kicked off the year, raising over $34,000, followed by Syracuse University’s sixth OttoTHON (over $200,000 raised), Cornell University’s Big Red THON (over $27,000 raised), and Ithaca College’s first-ever BomberTHON (over $28,000 raised). Supported by volunteers and dedicated student organizers, over 2,000 participants at these schools danced their way to another successful fundraising year “For the Kids!”
