Providing extraordinary care to our children is a community effort, and the Sparrow Children's Center has been the mid-Michigan community's Children's Miracle Network Hospital since 1988. 


Because of our generous community members, throughout the past 30 years we have succeeded in raising more than $21 million to help the 54,000 children struggling with illness and injury who visit Sparrow's Children's Center each year.  It is thanks to you that these children are afforded extraordinary care regardless of their family's ability to pay.  Together, we continue to be champions for these children, and this year we're doing it in a whole new way!



The traditional Telethon has been replaced by a single-day pledge drive called Day of Miracles, still focused on raising funds to aid in the advancement of services and care for children in mid-Michigan. 


Please tune in to WILX TV-10 from 4:30 a.m. to 11:30 p.m. on Friday, April 20 to view some amazing Patient stories, see the inside of our renovated Children's Center and meet our 2018 Miracle Child. It promises to be a great day of togetherness and record-breaking fundraising. Pictured to the left is our 2017 Miracle Child, Claire Stephens a 16-month old RNICU patient.           


What's the best part? All donations made during Day of Miracles will stay at Sparrow, benefitting the sick and injured children right here in our community. These gifts help build and strengthen the programs and facilities that give our young Patients the best care possible right here: where we live, work and play together.

When you make a pledge to the Sparrow Children’s Center, you're providing support and hope to children in our community, especially to those who may otherwise be unable to pay for their treatments and services. Your gift can change the lives of local children! You could be someone's miracle...


Get a behind-the-scenes look at the telethon through our Facebook and Twitter pages as we broadcast live!



Be a hero for Claire and all of the other
children treated at Sparrow's Children's Center.
