Thursday, Feb. 23-Saturday, Feb. 25, the sixth annual Clear Channel Cares for Kids Radiothon will be held. The recent expansion and renovation of MeritCare Children's Hospital was made possible by generous donations made in previous years. This year's donations will support special programs and high-tech equipment.
The public is invited to come to the live broadcasts to see the on-air personalities in action and listen to touching stories. The broadcasts will take listeners into the heart of MeritCare Children's Hospital – staff and doctors will be introduced and listeners will become acquainted with patients and families whose lives have been touched by the children's hospital.
Following is the schedule:
Thursday, Feb. 23 and Friday, Feb. 24
- 6 a.m.-6 p.m. – Broadcasting live from MeritCare's downtown campus
Saturday, Feb. 25
- 10 a.m.-6 p.m. – Broadcast live from MeritCare's downtown campus
Donations can be made during the broadcasts by calling toll free (877) 478-5437 (KIDS) or (701) 478-5437, or any time by going online to caresforkids.meritcare.com. A new online billboard is available so donors can make their donation in honor of a special person, or as a memorial gift.
