While you’re there you can sign up to join Extra Life and take part in events that happen all across the country all year round for CMN.

Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals is a national organization that works on a local level, which means every dollar raised in Shreveport-Bossier, stays in Shreveport-Bossier. The money funds 17 programs at CHRISTUS Health Shreveport-Bossier that our local kids and their families get to use for free. This enables them to focus on what’s really important, getting their child the help they need.
