COLUMBIA, Mo. — Behind the scenes, caregivers at MU Children’s Hospital are responsible for making miracles happen every day.
These miracle makers will join Children’s Hospital patients and parents in sharing their inspiring stories of health and healing during the sixth annual “Miracles for Kids” radiothon Thursday, March 1, and Friday, March 2, at MU Women’s and Children’s Hospital, 404 Keene St.

MU Children’s Hospital is teaming up with Children’s Miracle Network, Zimmer Radio Group and the Missouri Credit Union to host the annual fundraiser, which supports pediatric patients living in the area.
“All the money raised during radiothon stays here in mid-Missouri to help our local patients battling a wide range of illnesses,” said Timothy Fete, M.D., medical director of Children’s Hospital, chair of the MU School of Medicine’s Department of Child Health and Children’s Miracle Network Professor in Pediatrics. “We encourage the community to rally behind Children’s Hospital and join our team of miracle makers in supporting this year’s radiothon.”
