Children's Miracle Network Telethon

The 23rd annual CMN telethon kicks off Saturday night on WITN-TV at 9PM.

I can't tell you how fortunate I am to be a part of this fabulous event. Last year was my first year involved in the event and I can tell you I walked away feeling like I had really done something positive for the children of Eastern Carolina.

Like a lot of people who flip through the channels and see people trying to raise money, I used to think it was a really nice thing but never donated. After being involved in this and seeing these amazing children and their heroic stories I can't think of a better way to give.

All of the proceeds stay in Eastern Carolina. What other charitable organizations can say that? There will likely be people who will see it on Saturday and Sunday and feel tempted to pick up the phone and give, but I'm challenging those to please call. Times are tough right now for most everyone financially, but the CMN is so special not only to us here but to the sick and injured kids in our area who depend on the Children's Hospital at PCMH.

I'd also like to address those who might be frustrated that the Stanley Cup Finals won't be on. Remember if you want to see this game between the Red Wings and Penguins you can head to our 24/7 weather channel. That's channel 167 for Suddenlink customers... Time Warner Digital 931 or you can get it over the air on 7.2.

Thank you in advance for remembering what really matters here in the east and that is making sure our kids are able to achieve their fullest potential for the healthiest life possible. Thank you to the Doctors and the organizers of the CMN as well and most importantly thank you for reaching into your hearts to donate.

See you Saturday at 9PM!
