Caring for Kids Radiothon raises $1.6 million!

On Thursday, April 29 the talented and dedicated broadcasters from Astral Media Radio’s CHOM 97.7, CJAD 800 and Virgin Radio 96 hosted our annual Caring for Kids Radiothon to raise funds for our Hospital. Dozens of young patients and their families shared remarkable stories of how their lives have been touched by The Children’s.
Aired live from the Hospital’s cafeteria, between 5:30 a.m. and 7:00 p.m., the Radiothon is a uniquely special event, its success depends on the support of numerous sponsors and the thousands of listeners who respond to our appeal and join the Circle of Hugs.
The Radiothon was part of Astral Media Radio’s national day of giving across Canada which raises millions of dollars for pediatric hospitals during a single broadcast day.
