Annual radiothon to benefit Upstate Golisano Children’s Hospital is Sept. 26 and 27
The 11th Annual Radiothon for Kids benefiting Upstate Golisano Children’s Hospital will broadcast live from Upstate University Hospital’s Downtown Campus on Thursday and Friday, Sept. 26 and 27. The Foundation for Upstate Medical University is partnering with Clear Channel Radio for this annual fundraiser that supports new equipment, toys, the Family Resource Center, Safe Kids Upstate NY and children’s hospital programs, including research, educational training and the Child Life Program.
“The Radiothon is special because it gives the community a chance to hear about the miracles that happen in our children’s hospital directly from the patients and their families,” said Toni Gary from the Foundation for Upstate.
“It is heartwarming to hear our kids and their families sharing the experiences on Radiothon each year and encouraging the community to show their support through donations.”
This year, Radiothon for Kids will broadcast live from the lobby of Upstate University Hospital and will air from 5 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Syracuse Clear Channel stations: Y94 FM, WSYR Radio, Hot 107.9 and B104.7. Donations can be made online now and throughout Radiothon by visiting Radiothon for Kids or Clear Channel stations.
Learn more about the kids who will be featured on this year’s broadcast. Join the conversation during Radiothon for Kids on the Upstate Golisano Children’s Hospital Facebook and follow @UpstateNews and @UpstateGolisano on Twitter using the hashtag #UpstateKids.
