Your generosity makes a difference, and all we can say is, "Thank You Arizona!"

The ABC15 Telethon benefiting Phoenix Children's Hospital raised a record amount in 2017.

$740,585 is a big number.

We could not have done it without you.

You helped so many children get the hope and healing they deserve.

This year, we had the privilege of bringing you some of their stories. One of the kids we talked to is Alexis Ruiz.

She told us how she was able to overcome severe pain to become a champion athlete thanks to Phoenix Children's Hospital's Sports Medicine program.

You can see her story in the video player above.
