CMC Telethon Photo Believe in miracles

When the weekend-long Children's Miracle Network Telethon drew to a close June 3, nearly $1.3 million had been raised to benefit U.Va.'s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and a new research endowment for pediatrics. Dr. Robert M. Carey, dean of the School of Medicine, will match telethon gifts, 50 cents on every dollar, to establish the endowment.

Hand in hand with the telethon, the annual CMC Walk-A-Thon, held June 2, contributed $85,000 of the total.

The telethon, which raised almost $200,000 more than last year locally, featured patients and friends of the CMC, along with Channel 29 TV personalities (left to right): Dave Cupp, Lonnie Quinn, Robert Van Winkle, Angell Husted, John Havey and Stacey Horst.

Nationwide, 170 hospitals participate in the Children's Miracle Network, which raises funds through telethons that benefit some 14 million children a year.
