Last Saturday, Amanda Seyfried, Colin Farrell and Jason Sudeikis celebrated the work of the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals during the “Epic” red carpet premiere in New York.

Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals has been chosen as the national charity partner of the new animated adventure, “Epic,” from Fox Animation and Blue Sky Studios. The organization raises funds and awareness for its 170 member children’s hospitals.

The film will be released in theaters nationwide May 24, but the New York City red carpet premiere was held Saturday, May 18 at New York’s Ziegfield Theater and included appearances from the the animated film’s stars. Joining Seyfried, Farrell and Sudeikis were Aziz Ansari, Chris O’Dowd, Judah Friedlander and child actor Emma Kenney.

Also taking her turn on the red carpet was 12-year-old Kaitlin, a “Miracle Child” who served as a national correspondent and ambassador for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.

Kaitlin has received treatment for spina bifida at New Jersey’s Children’s Specialized Hospital and The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, both members of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Kaitlin has overcome staggering physical challenges and a dire initial prognosis, but has fought courageously since birth.

The weekend’s events coincide with “May is for Miracles” fundraising campaigns happening at Walmart, Sam’s Club, Costco and Carmike Cinemas across North America.

Every year, member Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals provide 32 million treatments to 10 millions kids every year across the U.S. and Canada. Donations stay local to fund a variety of the most pressing pediatric care needs, from life-saving treatments and equipment to specialized care and cutting-edge research.
