Radiothon brings in $216,000 for Children’s Hospital of Georgia

Children's Hospital of Georgia and iheart radio staff celebrate surpassing last year's Radiothon total by $10,000.

The 16th annual Cares for Kids Radiothon, a three-day Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals fundraiser, brought in nearly $216,000 in donations and pledges for the not-for-profit Children’s Hospital of Georgia.

Area iheart radio stations 104.3 WBBQ, 96.3 Kiss FM and The Bull 105.7 began broadcasting early Thursday, asking listeners to call in and become “miracle makers” for the area’s only children’s hospital. Also during the broadcast, patients, families and staff shared inspirational stories about the care they have received at Children’s Hospital of Georgia, one of the nation’s best for pediatric care.

 The Cares for Kids Radiothon is the largest single CMN Hospitals fundraiser for CHOG. This year’s total was $10,000 more than was raised last year.

 Pledges to CHOG can be made year-round. Call 706-721-4004 or email castewart@augusta.edu for more information.

The 154-bed not-for-profit CHOG is the second-largest children’s hospital in the state, providing the highest level of pediatric critical care and neonatal intensive care, as well as a wide range of general and complex health care for children. CHOG was recently ranked as the nation’s top performing hospital in pediatric quality and safety by Vizient Inc., a consortium of the country’s academic medical centers.
