In 2017, Wal-Mart celebrated its 30th year of partnering with Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals®, which includes Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt. During this time, Wal-Mart has raised nearly $1 billion for CMN Hospitals nationwide — more than any other corporation has given to pediatric hospitals. Locally, Wal-Mart raises more than $500,000 each year and has raised more than $10 million so far for Children’s Hospital. This support includes a communitywide fundraising effort with customers asked for donations during a four-week period, which will happen Aug. 27 – Sept. 23. These proceeds have supported important programs and services for children and families at Children’s Hospital. Wal-Mart’s support also funded two new nurses’ stations in the expanded space made possible by donors to the Growing to New Heights Campaign.
