Dayton Children's is fortunate to have a long-standing relationship with K99.1FM, the local country music radiostation. Every year, K99.1FM hosts a three-day Cares for Kids Radiothon to raise money for the hospital. During the 2010 Radiothon, Nancy Wilson and Frye Guy, co-hosts of the popular "Breakfast Club" morning show tireless volunteered their talents to share the Dayton Children's story on air. Through powerful "story songs" and live interviews with patients and families, they asked their listening community to pledge $10 per month for 12 months. More than $200,000 was raised, making this the most effective fundraising event for the hospital during the year.
As a thank you to K99.1FM and Cox Media Group, I put this video slideshow together as a tribute to their efforts and to give our donors a unique "behind the scenes" look at what happens during the live broadcast. This is a major team effort with the amazing staff at K99.1FM, the Dayton Daily News, the sponsors, volunteers, the Dayton Children's staff, and most importantly, our patients and families who generously share their incredible stories.
Dayton Children's is proud member of the Children's Miracle Network and recognize how fortunate we are to have such a strong partnership with Cox Media Group in Ohio.
