West Michigan Walmart Store Employees Raise Funds for Children's Miracle Network

Employees from West Michigan Walmart stores got together Saturday morning at the Alpine Township Sports Complex for a softball tournament as part of their efforts to raise funds for the Children's Miracle Network..  Even the area market manager was on hand to umpire the first game.  When the dust settled, the real winners were the local kids who benefit from the Children's Miracle Network.

The goal of the network is twofold:

Help as many children as possible by raising funds for children’s hospitals.

2. Keep funds in the community in which they were raised to help local children.
The organization was founded by Marie Osmond and her family, John Schneider, Mick Shannon and Joe Lake.
As of 2011, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals has raised more than $4.3 billion—most of which is donated a dollar or two at a time.
