This year, St. Sebastian Parish School students were Change Bandits for the “Have a Heart, Do Your Part” Radiothon.
To say thank you to the event coordinators, volunteers, Change Bandits and CMN partners who donated $878,741 last year, Akron Children’s Hospital hosted the “Night at the Movies” recognition event on March 20 at the Akron Civic Theatre.
The 15th annual “Have a Heart, Do Your Part” radiothon ended this year as another success. The radiothon kicked off on Feb. 12 during the Change Bandit Bash at the Sheraton Suites in Cuyahoga Falls. More than 300 people attended the Bash to turn in their spare change and enjoy food and giveaways as well as activities such as face painting.
When 6-year-old Ava Turner smiles at you, you immediately find yourself smiling back. And these days, Ava has a lot to smile about, thanks to Akron Children’s Hospital.
St. Sebastian Parish School students once again participated in Akron Children’s Hospital’s 15th annual Have a Heart, Do Your Part radiothon. Sixth grade teacher Mike McDonald organized our Change Bandits and set a $500 goal, which was the amount we collected in 2013.
Local businesses, such as Buehler’s Food Market in Portage Lakes, are signing up to be Change Bandits to raise money for the Have a Heart, Do Your Part radiothon, which airs Feb. 13-15 on 98.1 WKDD.
