CMN miracle kids sitting and smiling

For more than 30 years, Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) Hospitals has raised funds nationally for more than 170 children’s hospitals, including Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta.

As a Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals member, Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta benefits from community support in our efforts to help make kids better today and healthier tomorrow. Nearly 60% of our patients in 2022 were on Medicaid, PeachCare for Kids or unable to cover the cost of their care. This is why we need our community to help us provide affordable care to more kids.

Fundraising efforts from CMN Hospitals in metro Atlanta and north Georgia directly benefit Children’s, reflecting CMN Hospitals’ pledge to keep 100% of donations in the local community. CMN Hospitals conducts thousands of corporate campaigns and hosts special events each year.

Do you know a child who inspires others with their determination and positive attitude in spite of injury or illness? The Children’s Foundation and Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals team wants to hear their story. You can nominate your child (or a child near and dear to you) to become one of our Miracle Children.

Why Nominate a Miracle Child?

This is your opportunity to not only lift up a special kid, but also give back by pledging your commitment to spreading the word about the important work we do at Children’s.

Those chosen as Miracle Children and their families serve as ambassadors to Children’s and our Foundation, helping to generate awareness and support by participating in corporate and fundraising events throughout the year.

What Is a Miracle Family?

If your child is selected as a Miracle Child, you become a “miracle family.” It is a commitment for everyone involved. Here are some things to consider before you nominate a Miracle Child. Miracle families should:

  • Be flexible and dependable.
  • Be comfortable sharing their child’s story in front of groups of people, large or small, through video, print, photography and written stories.
  • Be open to appearing at events and with media.
  • Have reliable transportation in order to attend events; families are invited to attend approximately eight events annually primarily within the metro Atlanta area and/or Children’s hospital locations.
  • Have received the majority of their care at Children’s within the last year, and currently be medically stable.
  • Nominated child should be 2-17 years old.

Make the most of your child’s journey by inspiring other families experiencing similar challenges. Give back to the hospital you trusted with your child’s care. And feel the love and support from a community rallying behind your miracle child.

Children’s releases the online nomination form each spring to collect nominations for the following year’s Miracle Children. If you have any questions, contact Sophie Sajecki, Senior Program Coordinator, at 404-785-6888 or
