Area iheart radio stations 104.3 WBBQ, 96.3 Kiss FM and The Bull 105.7 began broadcasting early Thursday, asking listeners to call in and become “miracle makers” for the area’s only children’s hospital. Also during the broadcast, patients, families and staff shared inspirational stories about the care they have received at the Children’s Hospital of Georgia, one of the nation’s best for pediatric care.
The Cares for Kids Radiothon is the largest single CMN Hospitals fundraiser for the Children’s Hospital. This year’s total was $10,000 more than was raised last year.
