Children's Hospital Hosts Annual Children's Miracle Network Radiothon
COLUMBIA, Mo. — Behind the scenes, caregivers at MU Children’s Hospital help to make miracles happen every day.
These miracle makers will join Children’s Hospital patients and parents in sharing their inspiring stories of health and healing during the ninth annual Missouri Credit Union “Miracles for Kids” radiothon Thursday, March 5, and Friday, March 6 at MU Women’s and Children’s Hospital, 404 Keene St.
Local Zimmer radio stations, 93.9 FM The Eagle, 94.3 FM KAT Country, 99.3 FM Clear 99 and 106.9 FM Y107 will broadcast live from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. both days in the lobby of Children’s Hospital.
MU Children’s Hospital is teaming up with Children’s Miracle Network, the Missouri Credit Union and Zimmer Radio Group to host the annual fundraiser, which supports pediatric patients living in our area.
All of the money raised during this radiothon stays here in mid-Missouri to help our local patients.
“Our patients are battling a wide range of illnesses and injuries,” said Timothy Fete, M.D., medical director of Children’s Hospital, chair of the MU School of Medicine’s Department of Child Health and Children’s Miracle Network Professor in Pediatrics. “The money raised is used to purchase equipment that can help us in diagnosing and treating the young patients as well as in the child’s recovery. It also funds various programs used in patient care throughout Children’s Hospital. We encourage the community to join our team of miracle makers and rally behind our children.”
