The Children’s Miracle Network is an international non-profit organization that has affiliations with 170 children’s hospitals. Children’s Miracle Network at Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital serves the Harrisburg, Lancaster, Lebanon and York region. More than 95,000 children are treated annually at Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital, central Pennsylvania’s only pediatric trauma unit.

Children’s Miracle Network’s mission is to generate funds and awareness programs for Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital and the children and families it serves. Since it began locally in 1984, Children’s Miracle Network has raised more than $50 million for Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital.

In the video below, meet our superhero, Joseph Romero! Who has been a patient at Penn State Hershey Children's Hospital since he was born 13 weeks premature and weighed only 1lb 13 oz at birth. See how Children's Miracle Network helps kids like Joseph while they are in the hospital.

See Joseph's reaction when he sees himself flying as Iron Man for the first time...on WGAL.
