Western New York raised over one million dollars at this year’s Variety Kids Telethon.

This year, Victoria Reyes was Celebrity Child. She and her family got to dance on stage with the Goo Goo Dolls.

“Today has been crazy. But today has been very emotional,” said Natalia Reyes, Victoria’s mother.

Victoria's father says just because the telethon is over, doesn't mean people in Western New York can't still help.

“It can hit anybody. You can have the healthiest kid in the world. And all of a sudden you have to wake up and rush your kid to the hospital,” added Luis Reyes.
