Ring CMC Telethon phones for 20th
The Children’s Miracle Network Telethon is broadcast live every spring

penny raised in Central Virginia remains in the community to support the work
of the CMC.

5th, 8 to 11:30 p.m., and June 6th, 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.
In the past, telethon funds have supported the Newborn Emergency
Transport System van, the Virginia Children’s Heart Center, renovations to the Neonatal
Intensive Care Unit, pediatric research and books and toys for the CMC.
conjunction with the telethon, the 20th Annual CMC Walk-For-Kids,
hosted by Klockner Pentaplast, will take place on June
