Walmart Campaign Kick Off!

Local Walmart and Sam’s Club stores are once again joining forces to raise money for UNM Children’s Hospital during the annual Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals (CMN Hospitals) campaign.

This year’s register campaign runs from August 27 to September 30. Customers and members can conveniently donate $1 or more when they check out at any Walmart or Sam’s Club location in New Mexico and Southern Colorado! Associates also fundraise in other ways including bake sales, in-store contests and events.

In 2017, the six-week Walmart and Sam’s Club campaign raised more than $433,000 for Children’s Miracle Network at UNM Children’s Hospital. On a national level, Walmart and Sam’s Club are closing in on the $1 billion fundraising mark for CMN Hospitals in the U.S. and Canada. Like all CMN fundraisers, 100 percent of funds go directly to UNM Children’s Hospital.

Walmart and Sam’s Club joined the CMN Hospitals fundraising family in 1987 with Sam Walton himself being personally involved in the beginning of the relationship between the organizations. The fundraising campaigns supports Walmart’s goal of giving back to local communities.

Walmart stores celebrated the start of their campaign at the UNM Children’s Hospital on Pete’s Playground! They created Beads of Courage to wear during their campaign in honor of our patients. Check out the pictures below!
