The Caring for Kids Radiothon is around the corner

On Thursday, April 30, the talented and dedicated broadcasters from Astral Media Radio’s CHOM 97.7, CJAD 800 and Virgin Radio 96 will host our annual Caring for Kids Radiothon to raise funds for the hospital. Dozens of young patients and their families will share remarkable stories of how their lives have been changed by The Children’s. As in previous years, the event will be aired live from the hospital cafeteria, between 5:30 a.m. and 7:00 pm. Since 2004, the Radiothon has raised over $10 million to respond to the hospital’s most urgent needs.

The 2009 Radiothon will take on a new one-day format, as part of Astral Media Radio’s national day of giving. Virgin Radio 96, CHOM 97.7 and CJAD 800 will join their sister stations across Canada in raising millions of dollars for pediatric hospitals during a single broadcast day.

The Foundation is counting on the help of hospital staff to help find patient stories to be shared on Virgin Radio 96, CHOM 97.7 and CJAD 800. If you know a patient or a family who has a story to share and are able to speak in English, contact Danielle Gabrielle Roy at the MCH Foundation, ext. 29225.
