Imagine a world without children’s hospitals. To do so, one must also imagine fewer lives saved, fewer advances in treatment and fewer programs and services for the tiniest of patients. That’s why CMN Hospitals is declaring March 20-27 #ChildrensHospitalsWeek.
#ChildrensHospitalsWeek is all about highlighting the importance of children’s hospitals and how donations help kids — no matter their illnesses or injuries — get the best care when they need it. The weeklong celebration, which aligns with Momentum, will include several fundraising and awareness efforts including:
Participate in the “My Miracle Child” bandage campaign on social media: Sport a bandage and write on it the name of a child who has benefitted from a children’s hospital, take a photo and share it with #ChildrensHospitalsWeek.
Celebrate Free Cone Day at Dairy Queen on Monday, March 20: Fans can receive a free, small soft serve cone at participating locations nationwide. Some locations will use this high-traffic day to raise critical funds for the local children’s hospital by accepting donations. DQ® stores raised over $250,000 on Free Cone Day in 2016 alone and have raised more than $120 million for CMN Hospitals.
Tune in to a Facebook Live-athon hosted by Nick Cannon on Friday, March 24, at 10 a.m. (EST): The exciting, two-hour live event will feature appearances by Miss America 2017 Savvy Shields, legendary NFL quarterback Steve Young, singer Alli Simpson and a “Champion” child from every state and Canada, similar to CMN Hospitals’ trademark telethons. Catch the action at Facebook.com/CMNHospitals.
Join the Twitch stream for Extra Life United from Thursday, March 23 – Saturday, March 25: Extra Life United is a gaming tournament where attendees experience the mission of CMN Hospitals, connect with other Extra Lifers from around the world, and compete in a gaming tournament to unlock a prize pool of at least $150,000 in funds for their local CMN Hospitals. The event will be broadcast live on Twitch. The Extra Life program has raised more than $30 million for CMN Hospitals since 2008.
