In 2017, Walmart 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, Walmart has raised nearly $1 billion for CMN Hospitals nationwide — more than any other corporation has given to pediatric hospitals. Locally, Walmart 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. Walmart’s support also funded two new nurses’ stations in the expanded space made possible by donors to the Growing to New Heights Campaign.
