John Schneider

Marie Osmond

We have enjoyed celebrity support since the beginning. In fact, we were founded in 1983 by two celebrities: John Schneider and Marie Osmond. Since that time, hundreds of celebrities have appeared on our annual Telethon or offered their support in other ways. Our celebrity friends visit sick kids in hospitals, record PSAs, attend events, Tweet and Facebook about us, perform at our annual Celebration, and – most importantly – help spread the message that Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals need your help.
