The Goose Creek Walmart raised an impressive $45,961.90 to benefit MUSC Children’s Hospital, a member of the Children’s Miracle Network.
The total makes the Goose Creek Walmart the 16th in the country for its CMN fundraising in 2013.
Walmart is the largest CMN corporate sponsor, and each year holds a six-week campaign to raise money for each region’s Children’s Hospital; in Charleston, 13 Walmart stores raised money for MUSC’s Children’s Hospital.
The 13 stores collectively raised $189,065 during the recently completed campaign.
A celebration was held at the store in thanks for its effort, and the generosity of Walmart customers.
Since its founding in 1987, MUSC Children’s Hospital is now ranked as one of the top pediatric facilities in the country. The Charles P. Darby Children’s Research Institute, opened in February of 2005, houses 150 state of the art laboratories where researchers look for the prevention, treatment and cures for illnesses like diabetes, sickle cell and cancer. The Institute is one of 15 in the country and the only research center for children in the Carolinas.
