Phi Mu is so thankful to be working with the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals for our philanthropy. CMNH helps provide care to pediatric patients across the United States and Canada. There are almost 200 hospitals that are a part of the Network, and the money raised through our philanthropy events help to fund research, equipment, patient care and training. The University of Missouri is fortunate to have a CMNH Hospital right in Columbia, Missouri, so we have the chance to interact directly with some of our “Miracle Kids.”
In the fall of 2015, we will be hosting our first annual Miracle Week in which Phi Mu will be promoting events campus-wide to benefit Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and the MU Hospital. Phi Mu prides itself on having fun events for our sisters as well as our guests and those who participate. Our proceeds generate $8,000-10,000 annually through events and sponsorships throughout the year.
Phi Mu is involved in many other service events as well, such as volunteering at the local hospitals, the Food Bank for Central and Northeast Missouri, participating in MizzouThon, and other community opportunities. Phi Mu sisters have a large participation in MizzouThon, where Mizzou students dance for 13.1 hours FTK (For The Kids!) with our Miracle Children that benefit from Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
