(Sioux Falls, SD) – Listeners from the Sioux Falls area came together to help children fighting cancer by supporting the 4th annual Results Radio Radio Cure Kids Cancer Radiothon. A total of $231,965 was raised when Sanford Children’s Hospital teamed up with Results Radio during the 36 hour radiothon event March 23 – 25. Hosts from MIX 97.3, KIKN Country 100.5, B102.7, Hot 104.7 as well as KSOO 1130 and KDEZ 100.1 were live on the air from the Carlson Great Hall of Sanford Children’s Hospital in Sioux Falls. Announcers interviewed physicians and staff of Sanford Children’s and shared the inspiring stories of area children and their families.

“Thanks to the continued commitment of the Results Radio team, The Cure Kids Cancer Radiothon was once again a huge success,” said Amy Sumner, program director, Cure Kids Cancer. “The success is also an example of our compassionate community. The people here are willing to give to make a difference in the lives of children living with cancer.”

All proceeds raised through Cure Kids Cancer go directly to programs and services for Sanford Children’s pediatric cancer patients and families, including direct child and family assistance, and pediatric cancer education and research. Camp Bring It On, a camp for children with cancer, will also benefit.
