Children’s Miracle Network Program Spotlight: CHRISTUS Kids
Healthy kids become healthy adults. Christus Health Shreveport-Bossier is helping to grow healthy bodies and minds.
With the help of Children's Miracle Network, Christus Health Shreveport-Bossier is instilling healthy habits in kids early on. It is because of CMN, that Christus Louisiana Athletic Clubs in Shreveport and Bossier feature health and wellness programs that cater to kids. Kids's gyms are available with "kid-sized" workout equipment, exercise, dance and nutritional classes. All aspects of these gyms are supervised by trained specialists.
The goal of Christus Kids is to create a lifestyle for these kids that includes all aspects of wellness. It's a proactive approach to helping kids grow up to be healthy adults. And it's all thanks to Children's Miracle Network.
On March 26 and 27 we’re going to ask you to open your heart and your wallet for CMN.
We’ve teamed up with Children’s Miracle Network and Christus Health Shreveport-Bossier for The Miracle Maker Radiothon and it is solely For the Kids (#FTK). As a Miracle Maker, your $12 a month will go to the incredible programs funded by CMN like Christus Kids. That’s the beauty of CMN. Every dollar raised will stay right here to help those around us.
“Since 1983, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals has raised more than $5 billion—most of it $1 at a time—for 170 children’s hospitals across the United States and Canada, which, in turn, use the money where it’s needed the most. These donations have gone to support research and training, purchase equipment, and pay for uncompensated care, all to save and improve the lives of as many children as possible.
Our mission: We increase funds and awareness for local children’s hospitals.
Our vision: Together we save kids’ lives.
Right now there’s a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital working to save the lives of kids in your community. In fact, 62 children enter a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital for treatment every minute — that’s one child every second. Some are battling cancer. Some are suffering from a traumatic injury. Others require constant care because they were born too early, or with a genetic disease. Regardless of why the kids are there, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals always have their doors open.”
