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.
“We are thrilled to celebrate the 5th annual Give Kids a Miracle Telethon,” said Vanessa Delgadillo, executive director of philanthropy with Arkansas Children’s Foundation. “Thanks to the support of KNWA, FOX 24, and our incredible volunteer fundraisers with Arkansas Dance Marathon, Arkansas Children’s is able to provide care close to home to the children in the region.”
The funds raised from both events will be celebrated on Friday, February 7 on KNWA and FOX24.
