Radio station 99.7 DJX hosted the 11th Norton Children’s Hospital Radiothon with support from 102.3 Jack-FM, B96.5, Magic 101.3 and ALT 105.1, raising $105,276. DJX spent the past two days sharing heartfelt stories of patients and families impacted by the hospital while taking donations from the Alpha Media stations’ listeners.
“This community does an amazing job of rallying around Norton Children’s Hospital and our mission to provide the best care for all kids and their families,” said Lynnie Meyer, Ed.D., R.N., CFRE, senior vice president and chief development officer, Norton Healthcare. “We are incredibly grateful for the outpouring of support.”
It’s not too late to help
As a not-for-profit, Norton Children’s Hospital relies on community support to serve all children, regardless of their families’ ability to pay.
“For more than a decade, we’ve been so grateful to everyone for making Radiothon a success,” said Ben Davis, co-host of the “Ben Davis and Kelly K Show” on 99.7 DJX. “Alpha Media is so happy to be part of a community that truly cares about the health and well-being of all kids.”
Radiothon helps the hospital purchase new technology and equipment, expand patient care and develop lifesaving research benefiting more than 180,000 children every year. The broadcast, held in partnership with the Children’s Miracle Network, has helped raise nearly $2 million over the years and is one of the largest Radiothons in the country.
