Three first grade girls celebrated their seventh birthday together while helping out the Children's Miracle Network at the same time.

Olivia Kalil, Alyssa Price and Morgan Sica attend Sauquoit Elementary School together and last month decided to hold a group birthday party.

But instead of presents, the girls asked for donations to CMN, raising more than $500 in the process.

CMN Hospitals was founded in 1983 and has become one of the leading children's charities raising money for hospitals.
