The Cares for Kids Radiothon celebrated its 20th year, raising over $237,000.

The 20th annual Cares for Kids Radiothon was held from Dec. 3-5 at the Children’s Hospital of Georgia. Today, it was announced that this year’s Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals fundraiser brought in $237,728 in donations and pledges.

Cares for Kids Radiothon is the largest single CMN Hospitals fundraiser for Children’s Hospital of Georgia.

Area iHeartMedia radio stations 104.3 WBBQ, 96.3 KISS-FM, 105.7 The Bull and television partners News 12/NBC 26 joined together over three days in support of Children’s, asking listeners to call in and become “miracle makers” for the area’s only children’s hospital.

Pledges to Children’s can be made year-round. Call 706-721-4004 or email Catherine Stewart for more information.
