The annual Children's Miracle Network Telethon benefiting the Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt will be held June 2-3.

The event will be broadcast live by WTVF-TV NewsChannel5 from the Children's Hospital theater.

The telethon will air June 2 from 10:30 p.m. to 12:30 a.m., and June 3 from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. This year's event marks the 25th anniversary of the national telethon.

During the broadcast, Channel 5's on-air personalities will serve as hosts and will feature inspiring stories and interviews with patients, families, faculty and staff.

Last year, the telethon raised $1.4 million for Children's Hospital.
