For 31 years Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital hosted the Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital Telethon as part of Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. It was how our community got to know many of our patients and understand the bravery and support required throughout their hardships and their miracles.
Telethon became a much-loved event thanks to our strong broadcast partner…a partner who helped us make a connection with families, individuals and businesses throughout our community. WFLA-TV News Channel 8 stood by our side for all 31 years of Telethon. They were loyal allies and passionate advocates for our cause. Thanks to their efforts, and the support of thousands of donors throughout the west coast of Florida, Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital raised nearly $90 million since 1983 through our annual Telethon.
While Telethon may be over, the stories of our featured patients continue to inspire a community. Watch their stories here.
