What

Our 19th Annual Corus Radiothon is a live, two-day broadcast on CISN Country 103.9 from the Stollery Children’s Hospital, with support from sister stations 630 CHED, 92.5 Fresh Radio and Global Edmonton.

During Radiothon, dozens of young patients and their families share stories of hope, help and healing to inspire our community to invest in excellence at the Stollery. The radio hosts encourage listeners to call our phone bank and become members of our Bear Hug Club — someone who pledges a minimum of $20/month to the Stollery Children’s Hospital Foundation.

The Corus stations generously donate airtime, staff and programming to allow the community a glimpse into everyday life at our world-class Hospital.

Why

Since 2000, Corus Radiothon has raised more than $20 million — including more than $1.3 million in 2017. Proceeds help our Foundation invest in the best people, programs, pediatric equipment and research to keep the Stollery Children’s Hospital world class in delivering specialized, acute health care to kids who need it most. Radiothon is the perfect opportunity for our supporters and volunteers to share in an inspiring experience and hear first-hand the difference donors make for Stollery kids.

The organizing committee of Corus Radiothon plans to raise an estimated amount of $1.3 million in support of the Stollery Children’s Hospital Foundation. Proceeds from this year’s event will help to buy equipment that benefits babies at the Stollery, including: a Blanketrol that helps regulate the temperature for babies with brain injuries; a neoBLUE blanket that helps with light therapy for premature babies born with jaundice; and hospital-grade recliners for mothers breastfeeding their babies. The costs associated with this event are not expected to exceed $81,000.
