Children’s Miracle Network, the Missouri Credit Union and Zimmer Radio Group will team up Feb. 24 and 25 for the 16th annual Miracles for Kids Radiothon to benefit MU Health Care’s Children’s Hospital.

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. until 6 p.m. Thursday and Friday from the Zimmer radio studios, while approximately 18 Miracle Families from Children’s Hospital will participate sharing their inspiring stories of health and healing. All proceeds raised will stay in central Missouri to help pediatric and adolescent patients at Children’s Hospital.

MU Executive Vice Chancellor Richard Barohn, MD, MU Health Care Chief Executive Officer Jonathan Curtright, Child Health Chair David Gozal, MD, and Christina Vollrath, executive director of Women’s Hospital and Children’s Hospital will also participate in the radiothon by sharing updates on the new Children’s Hospital under construction on the main hospital campus.

“The new Children’s Hospital will go above and beyond to create the best care environment for kids and their families when it opens in 2024,” Gozal said. “But this event is not about buildings or amenities, it’s about the unique stories of our patients and their families. We look forward to celebrating their successes and the dedicated doctors, staff, and generous donors who help each one of our patients live the healthiest, most fulfilling life possible.”

MU Health Care’s Children’s Hospital is central Missouri’s Children’s Miracle Network hospital. It is the largest and most comprehensive pediatric health care center in mid-Missouri. It is the only facility in the area offering a comprehensive array of specialized children’s services such as urgent transport services, child life and music therapy, neonatal and pediatric intensive care units, and pediatric oncology services.
