Families have always come first at Marriott, and we are therefore proud to support Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals®, an organization that has raised over $2 billion for children’s hospitals throughout North America.
Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals® is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping kids by raising funds and awareness for 171 children’s hospitals. These hospitals help 17 million children each year battle diseases and injuries of every kind. With Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals®, 100% of every dollar raised goes to the local participating hospital to help kids in that community. Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals® are among the best in the world and are able to provide specialized care to all children regardless of a family’s ability to pay.
In 1983, Marriott helped lend credibility to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals® when it became the organization’s first corporate sponsor. Ten years later, Marriott Pride was created to give our associates an opportunity to get involved and help raise money for the children in their communities.
Marriott Pride supports Marriott International businesses and their associates in North America to help raise funds for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals®. This initiative calls upon and enables all associates to work with their local Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals® on grass roots fundraising efforts. In collaboration with guests, business partners and associates, Marriott has raised more than $66 million to help children needing hospitalization in our local communities.
Children’s Miracle Network is dedicated to providing outstanding medical care “close to home” for the millions of kids in the Metro New York area. Children’s Miracle Network’s hallmark is that the funds raised locally, stay local and benefit over 550,000 children each year at two local children’s hospitals.
