Foundation officials announced the donation on Oct. 7. The foundation raises funds for Children's Health, which operates hospital campuses in Plano and Dallas as well as the Children's Health Care Network, specialty centers, rehabilitation facilities and physician services.
Miller is known for his social media marketing platform about golf with more than 1.2 million followers that has expanded to include several channels and a podcast.
The Dallas resident began raising money last year through PGA Memes Challenge golf tournaments for Children’s Medical Center Plano, where two of his children have received care, according to a news release.
“Nothing stands out more or is more rewarding than doing charity work for children in need,” Miller said in the release. “Working with Children’s Health and their team to raise funds through our PGA Memes Challenge events has been an amazing way to bring the golf community together and make a great impact where it’s needed.”
A playroom in the hospital’s Pauline Allen Gill Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders will be named the Nico and Mila Miller Playroom after Miller’s two youngest children, the release stated.
“We’re grateful to Travis and his family for generously contributing to the expansion of our Plano campus and for the difference their gift will make for patients and families across this region over many years to come,” said Brent Christopher, president of Children’s Medical Center Foundation, in the release.
Construction began in October 2021 to more than double the size of Children’s Medical Center Plano campus at 7601 Preston Road. The project will include a new patient tower, an expanded emergency room, more pediatric intensive care unit beds, enhanced hospital amenities and a parking garage.
The project, which officials said will triple the number of patients that can be served, is expected to be finished by late 2024, according to the release.
