The spirit of Radiothon week!

The Caring for Kids Radiothon’s success depends on the generosity of our donors and corporate partners. In that spirit, we are extending the Radiothon into the community at large through an initiative called Spirit of Radiothon Week. We are appealing to restaurants, retailers and companies to join us the week of May 27 and take part in this exciting event. There are so many ways to get involved: you can donate a percentage of total sales on a given day to the Radiothon, or give an amount on the sale of a menu or specialty item. You can choose one day of Spirit Week, or all five days. We are open to your suggestions! For more information, contact Janice Nault at


On behalf of all the young patients who shared their stories during the Caring for Kids Radiothon on May 30, 2013, thank you for your generous support.

The Radiothon is a unique event that brings our community together to help sick children and save lives. Every dollar pledged adds up to a remarkable total. The funds raised in one day help the Montreal Children’s Hospital provide world-class care throughout the year.

Funds raised at last year’s Radiothon were used to:

  • Purchase life saving medical equipment, such as oxygen saturation machines for the medical ward, volumetric pumps for the neonatal intensive care unit, and ventilators
  • Advance cutting edge research to help find cures and treatments for childhood diseases, including diabetes, cancer, and congenital heart defects
  • Fund unique projects such as trauma prevention and music therapy

... just to name a few. Whether you are new to the Circle of Hugs or a longstanding member, the impact of your generosity is felt throughout the hospital, in every department, on every floor and in the smiles of the young patients whose lives you have touched.
