Since 1983, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals has been raising funds for hospitals across the United States and Canada — and our very own James and Connie Maynard Children’s Hospital is one of them. All of the money raised through the local CMN Hospitals program stays right here in eastern North Carolina to support sick and injured children in our community.

Children's Miracle Network Hospitals was founded with two simple goals. The first is to help as many children as possible by raising funds for children’s hospitals. The second is to keep those funds in the community in which they were raised to help local children. Children's Miracle Network Hospitals has grown dramatically since its founding in 1983. In just 41 years Children's Miracle Network Hospitals has evolved into the dominant organization actively providing better health care for all children. Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals has grown into a tremendous year-round effort involving thousands of organizations, businesses, and individuals raising funds through special events and promotions.

Locally, as a fundraising program of the ECU Health Foundation, 100% of the money raised by the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals program stays right here in eastern North Carolina to support Maynard Children’s Hospital and the 29 counties it serves. Our children’s hospital treats children with all types of illnesses and injuries, including cancer, heart, muscular, birth defects, cerebral palsy, and traumatic injuries.
