The 2013 All Children's Hospital Telethon - WFLA News Channel 8

The 2013 All Children's Hospital Telethon

Posted: Updated:
TAMPA, FL (WFLA) -

The 2013 All Children's Hospital Telethon will be held on Sunday, June 2nd.

Celebrating 30 years of miracles, the telethon aims to raise funds and friends for the region's preeminent children's hospital.

A lot has changed over the years. Early Telethon stars that made their television debut as infants are now grown, some with children of their own. And the hospital's St. Petersburg campus is now home to state-of-the art patient care spaces that Telethon dollars helped to build.

In a statement posted on the All Children's Hospital Telethon website, "The road ahead holds opportunities to build upon these strengths. Our integration with Johns Hopkins Medicine in Baltimore is already generating collaborative research efforts. Innovative training of tomorrow's physicians in the All Children's Hospital Johns Hopkins Medicine pediatric residency program begins in 2014. One can only imagine the impact this will have on the children who'll be counting on our care in the future. Making it a reality relies on continued support from Telethon viewers like you."

On Telethon Sunday June 2nd, WFLA News Channel 8 will present stories of some amazing kids live from All Children's Education and Conference Center.

One new twist this year will give WFLA viewers a "sneak peek" of the Telethon on Saturday June 1st from 7- 7:30 PM. Tune in to learn more about the hospital's history and to see some familiar faces - past Telethon stars and former Channel 8 hosts who will be returning for this year's broadcast.

The money raised on each local Telethon stays at that area's local children's hospital.

But the best reason to tune in on June 2nd - and one thing that will never change about our Telethon - is the stars of the show, the incredible kids who benefit from All Children's care.
