Teleton 2012 Launch Campaign

The final countdown to the Teleton 2012 has started! Thanks to the generosity of all Mexicans we are near to perform the 16th Teleton. Committed with Mexico's future; Society, big companies, and the mass media, together with show business' stars and the most famous communicators will contribute, as usual, with their love and full commitment to help our children suffering from some disability, autism and cancer.

Satisfied of having fulfilled with the promises offered once again, we proudly announce the upcoming opening of our 20th Children's Rehabilitation Center in Guerrero, as well as our first Teleton Autism Center in Ecatepec.

Currently, the first Teleton Children's Oncology Hospital is under construction, which will be located in the state of Queretaro. Due to its technological complexity, the construction and equipment is to be finished within a 20 month period, and is to be opened in November 2013. This year, we will have the participation of 680 media associated with the Teleton, which make possible this project of national union; promoting and strengthening a support culture for our children with disabilities, autism and cancer.  The media associated to Teleton are fundamental for spreading this year's campaign, which was made by Peliculas Imaginarias productions. This year, we will reinforce our message of national unity, equality and inclusion that began with the 2011 campaign. For this reason, we have decided to keep our motto: "Let us walk together". We will give a personal message, honoring the donors and communicators; thanks to whom we always achieve great things in Teleton, which are reflected in our children's achievements, too.

Teleton will take place on December 7th and 8th. The goal is to gather $ 471,472,925 plus 1 peso. The amount is getting higher but with the generosity of all Mexicans we are sure that we can make it again, walking together.

We want to exceed our goals in Teleton year by year, because the more donations we receive, the more children we can help.

Today, thanks to the generosity of all Mexicans, we are the biggest private children's rehabilitation system worldwide, holding therapists and doctors trained in our own university, to ensure the highest quality standards that characterize us from the very first day. The CRIT system is internationally accredited by the Comission on Acreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF). With this accreditation, we will improve our care, vision and mission, which translate into a commitment with the permanent quality and safety improvement in the services provided to all the handicapped children, as well as their families; achieving a full rehabilitation and involving the society, lifting the spirit of the motto: "Love and science for life".

Teleton's accomplishments are not measured in money, but in wills joined together, in ideas that are transformed, in changing lives.

"Teleton 2012. Let us walk together"
