Nicklaus Children’s Hospital is your exclusive Children’s Miracle Network Hospital in Miami-Dade, Broward and Monroe Counties. Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals® (CMNH) is a non-profit organization dedicated to raising funds and awareness for 170 children’s hospitals across North America. Its core philosophy is to keep 100 percent of donations in the local area in which they are raised.

Since 1983, CMNH's dedicated partners and programs have raised more than $7 billion to make miracles happen for kids in need. Specifically benefiting Nicklaus Children's Hospitals®, our local partners have helped us raise nearly $40 million for our patients. Most of these funds are raised one dollar at a time - and help one child at a time.

Meet Bradley and the Migenis Family

After being transferred via LifeFlight ambulance to Nicklaus Children's Hospital shortly after birth, Bradley was placed on medication to help control his overproduction of insulin. After tests showed he suffered from diffused white matter damage, aggressive intervention was required. Overcoming countless challenges, 54 days later Bradley graduated out of the NICU and was able to continue healing at home. Watch Bradley's story and meet our 2021 Miracle Family.

Dance Marathon

Each spring, Dance Marathon is a nationwide movement involving college and high school students at more than 350 collegiate and 200 high schools across the country, all raising money for the Children’s Miracle Network Hospital in their community.
