35th Annual Telethon Helps Children In Need

Posted at 10:13 PM, Jun 02, 2018

The Children's Miracle Network Telethon on NewsChannel 5 has continued to help kids in need.

This was the 35th year for the telethon, and we shared stories and talked about some of the medical advances and life-saving research taking place at Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt.

This year, $3.3 million was raised to benefit the children's hospital at Vanderbilt, which treats over 1,700 children every single day --  that number is up compared to the $3.1 million raised in 2017. 

So many miracle stories have come out of the hospital every day thanks to the generosity of people like you who desire to help these children.

NewsChannel 5’s Vicki Yates, Carrie Sharp, Rhori Johnston, and Jennifer Kraus hosted the annual Children's Miracle Network Telethon from 10:30 a.m to 5:30 p.m. Sunday on NewsChannel 5.

All the money raised stays in our community and goes to benefit patients and families at Vanderbilt.
