WASHINGTON, May 6 /PRNewswire/ -- XM Satellite Radio announced today the second annual XMKiDS Traveling Roadshow cross-country initiative to help Wal-Mart & Sam's Club raise $10 million in May for Children's Miracle Network, a non-profit organization dedicated to saving and improving the lives of children at hospitals across North America.

The XMKiDS Traveling Roadshow will kick-off on XMKiDS (XM 116), XM's award-winning children's channel, Monday, May 12 from Orange County, Calif. The entire XMKiDS on-air team -- including "Absolutely Mindy," Kenny Curtis, Jinx, and Robbie Schaefer -- will broadcast from Children's Miracle Network hospitals nationwide for two weeks before concluding with a live broadcast from Children's National Medical Center in Washington, D.C., Friday, May 23, and a free concert on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., Saturday, May 24.

In addition to upbeat, family-friendly music mix, the Roadshow broadcasts will also feature exclusive interviews with the kids, families and hospital staff whose lives have been impacted by their Children's Miracle Network hospital. XMKiDS fans can follow video footage from every stop on the tour and make donations to Children's Miracle Network by visiting or by purchasing a Miracle Balloon at a Wal-Mart or Sam's Club in their area.

"After the success of last year's XMKiDS Roadshow, Children's Miracle Network was excited to work with the incredible talent and staff of XM on another cross-country tour," said Jim Hall, president and CEO of Children's Miracle Network. "No doubt the incredibly powerful stories at these children's hospitals will help XM, Children's Miracle Network and Wal-Mart raise $10 million in May."

The XMKiDS Traveling Roadshow will conclude with a free concert broadcast live from The Sylvan Theater on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., Saturday, May 24 from 12-3 pm ET. The concert will feature some of the nation's premier recording artists for young people, including Lisa Loeb, Meredith Brooks, The Jimmies and Rhythm Child.

"XM is proud to partner with Children's Miracle Network, Wal-Mart and Sam's Club to bring the XMKiDS Traveling Road Show to kids in children's hospitals around the country," said Jon Zellner, senior vice president for music programming, XM. "This tour will create a fun, lively and interactive experience to encourage kids to help other kids within their communities. The funds we raise for Children's Miracle Network have the potential to make a positive impact on children in communities across the country. Last year, XM and Wal-Mart raised over $10 million dollars for Children's Miracle Network hospitals. This year we plan to exceed that goal and we encourage everyone in the XM Nation to buy a Miracle Balloon at Wal-Mart or Sam's Club during the month of May."
