Sick Colorado Kids Benefit from Generous Donors
Aurora, CO (February 14, 2014) – KALC Alice 105.9’s 36 Hours for Kids Radiothon raised a record breaking $1.87 million for the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals benefiting Children’s Hospital Colorado. The three-day radiothon kicked off at 6:00 a.m. on Wednesday, February 12th and wrapped up on Friday, February 14 at 6:00 p.m. The record-breaking fundraiser continues to keep Colorado as one of the top Children’s Miracle Network radiothons in the country.
For three days, Alice’s on-air talent broke away from regular programming to interview past and present patients of the hospital, play audio montages of children’s life-altering and inspirational stories and solicit their listenership to make a donation. Thousands of listeners became “Miracle Makers,” choosing to give $15 a month for a year.
In the thirteen years that Alice 105.9 has teamed up with The Children’s Miracle Network, more than $14 million dollars has been raised for Children’s Hospital Colorado.
