It's time to meet an amazing young lad by the name of Jonah. This fantastic 4-year-old and his family are featured here as the CMN Yakima Miracle Family in January.

Jonah might not remember the first 51 days of his life which was spent in the NICU, after having been born at just 31 weeks, but he sure has heard many amazing tales from his family. And these days, Children's Village has become his second home.

The generosity of the Yakima Valley never ceases to amaze us, and you answered the call again. In October, News-Talk 1280 & 101.3 KIT, a Townsquare Media station, led the charge locally for CMN. The Children's Miracle Network Radiothon was broadcast Friday, October 13th from 6 am to 6 pm.

The Radiothon, presented by local Ace Hardware stores, raises funds for pediatric programs and services at MultiCare Yakima Memorial Hospital, the designated Children's Miracle Network Hospital in Central Washington. Together, we set a record, more than doubling our goal to raise $106,944 for CMN Yakima.
