Successful First Day of Radiothon

Todd PittengerFebruary 28, 2020

It was a successful first day in a two-day effort to raise funds in the fight against childhood cancer. Rocking M Media radio stations Y 93.7 and FM 104.9 are hosting a two-day radiothon to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

The effort began at 6:00 Thursday morning. By the time the first day concluded, $46,833 was donated by listeners across Kansas.

All money collected during the radiothon will go to St. Jude, whose mission is to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment.

St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is a world leader in developing new, improved treatments for children with cancer. They create more clinical trials for cancer than any other children’s hospital. Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing and food, because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.

Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20 percent to more than 80 percent since it opened in 1962.

The effort to collect money, which includes multiple students from Kansas Wesleyan University volunteering to help staff a phone bank,  continues Friday through 7:00 in the evening.
