(Sioux Falls, SD) – No matter the age, cancer is a life-changing disease. But when children are affected by cancer, the experience of growing up is far different than healthy kids. That’s why Sanford Children’s Hospital and Results Radio are teaming up once again for the 5th Annual Results Radio Cure Kids Cancer Radiothon. Last year’s event raised nearly $232,000 and this year hopes are even higher.
The event, which aims at helping kids fight cancer, is being held March 28-30. During the 36-hour event, hosts from MIX 97.3, KIKN Country 100.5, B102.7, Hot 104.7 as well as KSOO 1140, KXRB 1000 and Easy 100.1, will broadcast live from the Carlson Great Hall at Sanford Children’s Hospital.
Tune in to listen March 28-30 from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. as families share personal and heartfelt stories about how their lives have been changed by Sanford Children’s Hospital. Station hosts will also talk with doctors and staff. The radiothon is also available online on MIX 97.3, KIKN Country 100.5, B102.7 and HOT 104.7.
