The stations involved in the radiothon are committed to the mission of helping sick and injured children through this Children’s Miracle Network effort. One hundred percent of the dollars raised will stay in Kansas to help Kansas children in need. Services provided by Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals include but are not limited to assisting with medications, lodging, therapy assistance, medical equipment and other needs associated with the care of a sick child.
Since the first radiothon held in 2001 in both Garden City and Wichita, more than $1 million has been raised to meet the medical needs of Kansas children. Via Christi Children’s Miracle Network assists children in more than 64 counties across Kansas with direct medical assistance.
