Children’s Miracle Network Broadcast to air June 5 and 6 on WIXT

The many ways that the upcoming Central New York Children’s Hospital at University Hospital will benefit pediatric patients, their families and the local community will be featured during local segments of the national Children’s Miracle Network Broadcast, to air Saturday, June 5, from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. and Sunday, June 6, from 1:30 to 3 a.m. and 4:30 to 6 p.m. on WIXT NewsChannel 9.

The broadcast features interviews with University Hospital pediatric patients and their families and members of the hospital’s pediatric health care team. Representatives from area businesses and organizations will present their Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) contributions during the broadcast. The telephone number to pledge financial support to CMN and the children’s hospital is 315-464-KIDS (5437).

Deviating from a once-a-year broadcast, the Upstate Medical University Foundation and WIXT have added four, 30-minute locally produced Children’s Miracle Network shows to its 2004 program schedule. The first two programs appeared in January and April. The remaining programs are scheduled for early fall and winter.

“Through this additional programming, we can reach a broader audience and achieve greater visibility for CMN, its sponsors and the excellent services provided by University Hospital’s pediatric team,” says local CMN director Toni Gary.

The CNY Children’s Miracle Network, celebrating its 20th anniversary, is part of a national effort to raise funds for hospitalized children worldwide. More than $11 million has been raised by the CNY Children’s Miracle Network. All money raised locally remains in Central New York to benefit the children at University and Crouse hospitals.
