This year’s 22nd annual U.Va. Children’s Hospital Telethon is set for Saturday and Sunday, June 3 and 4. WVIR NBC-29 will broadcast live local segments from the seventh floor of University Hospital beginning Saturday at 8 p.m. through 11:30 p.m. and again on Sunday from 10 a.m. until 6:30 p.m. During the broadcast, area families will share their personal experiences in receiving care at U.Va. Children’s Hospital. The stories will feature kids like Charley Gorman, an 11-year-old girl who suffered a life-threatening stroke that caused a loss of vision and paralysis on her left side. After 24 days at the Kluge Children’s Rehabilitation Center, Charley returned to her home in Lynchburg, her vision restored and able to walk again.

The Walk for Kids, a family-fun telethon event, will take place on June 3. Each year, U.Va. Health System employees join other members of the community to support U.Va. Children’s Hospital through participating in the Walk for Kids and the telethon. For more information, call 924-8432 or visit http://www.uvachildrensevents.org/.
