Covenant Kids Telethon

For the past six years, the Covenant Kids Telethon has showcased the extraordinary care Covenant provides for kids in our region and across Michigan. During the Telethon, WNEM TV5 personalities introduce viewers to past patients and their families, donors, physicians, nurses, sponsors and employees who support pediatric medical care in our community. Volunteers manage phone banks as viewers call in their pledges to support the pediatric efforts at Covenant HealthCare. The 7th Annual 2016 Covenant Kids Telethon airs live on WNEM TV5 on April 23rd, from 12 - 6 pm.

Thank you for making the 2015 Covenant Kids Telethon such a wonderful success! We hope you were able to tune in to the telethon and learn about the extraordinary health care provided for Covenant Kids right here in the Great Lakes Bay Region. To view pictures from the 2015 Telethon, click here.

Isn't there already a telethon to benefit kids?

Children's Miracle Network (CMN) is a national organization that conducts a telethon for hospitals that care for children. However, Hurley Medical Center in Flint has an exclusive relationship with CMN. The funds raised in our region go only to Hurley Medical Center. No funding is provided to Covenant to care for Covenant kids.
