Annual Midwest Communications Radiothon Underway

10th annaul event raises money for Children's Miracle Network

Broadcasters from Midwest Communications have begun their 10th annual Radiothon at Sanford Children’s Hospital.

They signed on at 6:00 a.m. on Thursday morning and will broadcast until 6:00 p.m. Then, they will sign on again Friday morning and broadcast until 6:00 p.m.

The goal is to raise more than $186,000, the amount they raised last year. The money goes to Sanford Children’s Miracle Network.

“100% of money raised over next two days is staying local, helping our families through specialized equipment, programs and services and also direct family assistance, like things insurance normally doesn’t cover,” said Erin Rohrer, Program Director for Sanford Children’s Miracle Network.

There will be a check presentation on Friday at 5:50.

If you would like to pledge, dial 605-328-5750.

The radiothon can be heard on Midwest Communications’ stations 92.5, 101.9 and 95.7.
