More than $1 million raised at Children's Miracle Network Telethon

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - The tally is in and all the donations have been counted. On the 35th annual Children's Miracle Network Telethon, $1,089,156 was raised.

It was with the public's donations throughout Saturday and Sunday University Medical Center was able to raise the money to benefit the children's hospital. All the money made over the weekend stays in Lubbock and will help children in the South Plains, West Texas and eastern New Mexico area.

We are more than grateful for the donations and wish for a similar, if not better, year in 2019.
