No sooner was the Children’s Health Holiday Parade’s cancellation in the rear-view mirror, then the Children’s team focused their attention on Children’s Medical Center becoming a radio station Thursday and Friday. No, they’ll still be handling the patients’ needs, but Children’s Medical Center will also be part of the 11th annual Christmas is For Children Radiothon. Broadcasting on 98.7 KLUV in English and La Grande 107.5 in Spanish, local celebrities and kids like Abel Escamilla Jr., Ace Shelton, Lacey Parker, Maddie Smith, Makenna Rodolph, Matthew Maurer, Rina Cantrell, Russell Vitrupp, Serene Zimmerman, Sim Scott, the Sutton Family and Tatum Teague will come together to raise funds benefiting Children’s.
Why last year Morning Drive Anchor Jody Dean and the crew provided a check reading $1,003,236 for Children’s Medical Center Foundation.
So while you’re driving around town, switch you radio to KLUV or La Grande and learn about the miracles that happen at Children’s. Who knows? You just might want to add your two cents to the efforts. And if you’re desk-bound, you can always listen via your computer.
