Country music singer Dierks Bentley held his 10th annual “Miles and Music for Kids” benefit for Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt Sunday at Ascend Amphitheater. Department of Pediatrics Chair Steven Webber, MBChB, MRCP, and Vanderbilt patient Dalton Waggoner were invited to the stage for this year’s check presentation of $636,479, which will go to support the “Growing to New Heights” campaign for the expansion of Children’s Hospital. Over the past decade, the motorcycle ride and concert event has raised more than $3 million for Children’s Miracle Network hospitals.
