What a weekend! The 2011 “Have a Heart, Do Your Part” radiothon was truly the most magical weekend on radio. For three days, our patients and their families, employees and the community shared the stories that make Akron Children’s Hospital a special place and raised $445,360.60 in the process to support the patient care programs here at the hospital.
As a first time participant at the radiothon, I was struck by how humbling the whole weekend was to witness. To see small children who can barely lift the bags of change they collected from family and friends or to hear the countless stories from people whose lives have been touched by the hospital was unlike anything I’ve experienced personally or professionally.
Thank you to the countless Change Bandits, volunteers, donors, employees, listeners and of course Keith, Jenn, Mark and the rest of team at WKDD for doing your part on behalf of Akron Children’s Hospital. We are grateful for your support, and the radiothon was a success because of you!
