SPRINGDALE, Ark. (KNWA/KFTA) — KNWA, FOX24 and KXNW will host the 6th annual Give Kids a Miracle Telethon on Thursday, February 25. From 5 a.m.–10:00 p.m., viewers will see firsthand the impact Arkansas Children’s Northwest has on patients and families.
Viewers are encouraged to call in to the live phone bank and become a Miracle Maker for a monthly gift of $20 or make a one-time gift to support the Greatest Need fund at Arkansas Children’s Northwest. Gifts can be made by calling (479) 455-5437 (KIDS) on February 25 from 5 a.m.–10:30 p.m. Donations can also be made by texting ACNW to 51-555 or by visiting give.archildrens.org/telethon from now until March 4.
The Give Kids a Miracle Telethon fundraises in conjunction with the Arkansas Dance Marathon, which is held on the campus of the University of Arkansas. Students from the university will simultaneously fundraise through a Dance Marathon “push,” or recruitment event, during the Give Kids a Miracle Telethon. The funds raised from both events will be celebrated on Friday, February 26, on KNWA, FOX24 and KXNW.
“We are thrilled to celebrate the 6th annual Give Kids a Miracle Telethon with KNWA, FOX24, KXNW and our incredible volunteer Arkansas Dance Marathon fundraisers,” said Emily McCoy, vice president of philanthropy at Arkansas Children’s Foundation. “Thanks to the generous support of the Northwest Arkansas community, Arkansas Children’s continues to provide care close to home to children in the region.”
