2019 CMN Partner Rally

On April 17th, nearly 700 employees from 15 of our Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals partner companies gathered in Oak Brook for the annual CMNH Rally. We celebrated our wonderful partners fundraising efforts from the past year. The rally is a way for us to engage, motivate and thank our partners, encouraging them to continue their fundraising for Lurie Children’s. As our summer campaigns for Walmart, Costco and SAM’s Clubs approach, it’s a chance to give them encouragement and materials to help their fundraising. All in all, together we raised a total of $7,764,760 For the Kids in 2018!

The YOU ROCK AWARD is given to the person who goes above and beyond in their fundraising efforts. This year it was given to Megan McCoy from Costco Wholesale for all that she does for our patients!


Our HIGHEST FUNDRAISING PARTNER award was given to Ace Hardware. Ace Hardware raised over $2.2 million dollars the past year!

The award for HIGHEST % INCREASE from 2017 to 2018 went to Great Clips in Rockford. We are so proud of this location for significantly increasing their fundraising from last year!


The TEAM OF THE YEAR award went to Panda Express in Machesney Park. Their location raised over $60 thousand dollars while being the furthest Panda Express from the hospital!

2019 marks the 31st year of Lurie Children’s Hospital being a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital. Our goal for 2019 is to raise $8,500,000! In 2019, we strive to create a bigger, brighter and better future for our patients.  So thanks to all of our wonderful CMNH partners for all of their support this past year, we are so excited to see all of the amazing work you do this year!
