From now until Dec. 4 and 5, when the Teletón will air live from Mexico on cable networks Galavision, shown locally on Time Warner Cable Channel 26, respectively.
“Thousands of buckets filled with donations are the result of a heart filled with love,” said local organizers of the event, who are helping to spearhead the outreach effort for the telethon here in the United States.
Children of all ages and nationalities are treated at these various facilities, with medical specialties offered in a variety of fields including pediatrics, neurology, orthopedics, urology and many more, as well as a range of therapies to help children improve their physical and mental well-being.
There are a number of centers, or Centros de Rehabilitación Infantil Teletón (CRIT’s) in operation in Mexico: Mexico state; Occidente; Oaxaca; Aguascalientes; Coahuila; Guanajuato; Hidalgo; Chihuahua; Chiapas; Ciudad Nezahualcoyotl; and Quintana Roo, with two being constructed in Mérida and Tamaulipas.
“Need knows no border, and we can always find it in our hearts, and especially, our pockets, to help children in need, no matter where in the world they may be,” said City of Laredo Mayor Raul G. Salinas
“That is why I am supporting this important initiative, and I want to ask my fellow Laredoans to also help with this wonderful cause,” he concluded.
Other local sponsors for this initiative include Ramon Barrios, Inc.; Taco Palenque; Periodico El Mañana, Río & Fémina; Los Guerreros Motorcycle Club.
