IHOP Serves Up Some Miracles on National Pancake Day
IHOP locations celebrated a month-long fundraising effort on February 25 by celebrating National Pancake Day! From Olathe to St. Joe, IHOP fans "flipped it forward" for kids when they received a free short stack of
pancakes alongside a donation to Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.
In Lansing, Kansas, the community has made supporting Children's Miracle Network Hospitals at the University of Kansas Medical Center a tradition! Typically leading the pack when it comes to dollars raised for local kids. We cannot wait to see the impact they will make with this year's effort!
Thank you to all IHOP associates, friends and families that supported CMN this year! Go ahead and reward yourself with another buttery stack of pancakes!
UMKC Dances for KU Kids
The University of Missouri- Kansas City held their event, Kansas City Dance Marathon, on Leap Day, February 29. They had a party in the safari and celebrated a banner year, raising $6,615.13 for sick and injured kids here in Kansas City! That was an increase of $1,000 over their 2019 total!
Students sporting safari hats, and creative face paint danced, played games, and heard stories from, local miracle families about how their hard work impacts families treated at the University of Kansas Medical Center.
Unique to Kansas City Dance Marathon, their organization is currently spearheaded by a dedicated group of students from the UMKC School of Medicine. Each year, Kansas City Dance Marathon hears from Dr. Christine Deeths. Not only is Dr. Deeths a mom to Miracle Children Rebecca and Tim, she is a graduate of UMKC School of Medicine. Hearing the Deeths family's story truly brings the mission of Children's Miracle Network Hospitals full-circle for many KCMD participants, as they truly never know when they will need the services of a CMN Hospital.
We cannot wait to see how this organization continues to make waves, raise funds, and create a wonderful tradition on their campus.
Thank You Mainstreet Credit Union
Many thanks to our friends at Mainstreet Credit Union for their amazing year of fundraising for KU Medical Center Pediatrics. Through the support and generosity of every employee and credit union member, they raised $9,222!! These funds were the result of the very successful sale of World's Finest Chocolate candy bars and an annual Skip-A-Pay campaign offered to members.
This year, the Skip-A-Pay campaign, which took place during the months of November, December and January, had a bit of competitive twist among the nine branches. Each month, the branch who raised the most in fundraising dollars received a special treat from CMN staff. From cookies to bundt cakes, each branch worked hard to be the recipient of a delectable dessert.
Congratulations to the Lenexa Branch, who won the November treat and the Olathe Branch on Loula St. who swept both December and January!
We appreciate Mainstreet Credit Union's hard work and dedication for making their 2019 CMN fundraising a sweet success!
