Telethon Raises Over $1.7 Million For The Children's Miracle Network

June 1, 2014 The 2014 Children's Miracle Network Telethon on WITN has come to an end with over a million dollars raised right here in Eastern Carolina.

This years donations came out to a grand total of $1,775,481.

The money raised will stay right here in Eastern Carolina to benefit the James and Connie Maynard Children's Hospital at Vidant Medical Center in Greenville.

Thanks to everyone who opened their hearts and wallets to make this year another success.


This weekend is your chance to help sick and injured kids all across Eastern Carolina!

The Children's Miracle Network Hospitals broadcast kicked off Friday night with many generous donations and will continue through 6:30pm Sunday.

Tune in for the compelling stories of kids from all across the east who have benefited from the generosity of your donations over the years.

In addition to the kids, we'll spotlight major donors like the Service League of Greenville, Food Lion and Walmart, along with other local families, groups and teams who have raised money for the hospital throughout the year.

The reigning Miss North Carolina, Johna Edmonds, will join us for the broadcast.

We'll also get an inside look at the new James and Connie Maynard Children’s Hospital at Vidant Medical Center.

Every year, hundreds and hundreds of volunteers from all across the east come together for this broadcast.

You can call in your pledge at 1-800-673-KIDS (5437).

The money you donate goes directly to the Children's Hospital in Greenville and could potentially help save the life of a young person in your community.
