Our 20th 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 The 'Chuck, Global News Radio 880 Edmonton and Global Television 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.
Proceeds from this year’s Radiothon will help to buy specialized equipment to improve patient outcomes:
• a portable ultrasound machine for scoliosis patients that reduces radiation for children and saves time in the clinic
• a Penguin milk warmer that maintains the nutritional quality and temperature of milk for babies in the Stollery neonatal intensive care unit at the Royal Alexandra Hospital site
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. The costs associated with this event are not expected to exceed $22,000.
For further information about the fundraising goals and costs for this event, please contact Brittany Bryce, special events co-ordinator, Stollery Children’s Hospital Foundation at 780.431.4609 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
