36 Hour Radiothon Huge Success for Local Children

Madison event raises more than $12,000 for Children's Miracle Network.

(Sioux Falls, SD) – For three days this week, the staff of KJAM Radio in Madison, SD worked tirelessly to raise money for Children’s Miracle Network at Sanford Children’s Hospital. Their efforts and the stories of 20 different children from around the region paid off. The KJAM Jammin for Kids Radiothon raised $12,715.37.

Children’s Miracle Network is thankful to KJAM and its on-air personalities, Matt Hendricksen, Brian Holt, Matt Groce and Peg Nordling, for sharing the stories of children battling everything from heart disease and leukemia, to diabetes and cystic fibrosis.

“I believe the radio can create emotion, and emotion touches people and motivates them to get involved,” said Lorin Larsen, KJAM General Manager. “This was a great opportunity for KJAM to show our commitment to children. I care about this cause and am proud our team was able to make a difference in the lives of sick and injured children. This event reminds us of the number of local and regional children that are served by Sanford Children’s Hospital, the region’s only Children’s Miracle Network Hospital.”

As a Children’s Miracle Network hospital, Sanford Children's Hospital offers the region's most comprehensive healthcare services for children. Leading edge technology, specially trained medical professionals and a vast array of services help meet the multiple medical needs of our patients and their families.
