Children’s hospital leaders surprise Walmart/Sam’s Club employees during CMN campaign

Saving lives and lifetimes is a team effort. That’s why UC Davis Children’s Hospital leadership, including UC Davis Health Chief Operating Officer, Brad Simmons, recognized the dedication of Walmart/Sam’s Club employees by making personal appearances at area stores during the annual Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals’ (CMN) campaign.

As a long time CMN partner, Walmart/Sam’s Club has been integral in raising funds for UC Davis Children’s Hospital and Simmons’ visit was just one way to acknowledge and rally the team.

“Having Brad visit the Antelope Walmart store to support the team was very impactful,” said Tony Hazarian, executive director of development for the UC Davis Medical Center. “His support and leadership, as well as that of the CMN team, Judie Boehmer and her nurses, helps underscore the important role individual employees play in the health of local kids. We could not provide world class care without the dedication of corporate partners like Walmart/Sam’s Club and their teams.”

Walmart and Sam’s Club locations across the greater Sacramento region will continue fundraising efforts through Sunday, July 25.

The campaign runs through Sunday, July 25. Donate online, in-store at the register or through self-checkout.
