Two recent radiothons held in conjunction with local radio stations raised more than a million dollars for Texas Children’s Hospital.

On December 6 and 7, Mega 101 FM raised more than $392,000 for Texas Children’s Hospital through its annual holiday Radiothon. As the leading Spanish contemporary FM station, Mega 101 is an exemplary partner that represents giving back to the children and families in the community whenever there is a need by their listeners.

Days later on December 13 and 14, the 15th Annual Cox Cares For Kids Radiothon brought in more than $625,000 for Texas Children’s Hospital. For two days, radio personalities from The New 93Q, Country Legends and The Eagle interviewed children and families who shared their stories of being treated at Texas Children’s.

Donations were raised through pledges called into a phone bank, as well as those made online through a text-to-donate campaign. The event was broadcast live from Texas Children’s in the third floor common area of the Pavilion For Women.

The 14th Annual Texas Children’s Radiothon has begun and is packed with inspiring stories about many of our patients, the struggles they are facing and how we are helping them push through.

Historically, the Cox Media-hosted radiothon has been conducted over a couple of days and is broadcasted from Texas Children’s Hospital. This year, because of Hurricane Harvey, and the fact that many people have already been so generous to Houston already, the format of this year’s radiothon has changed.

Instead of a few days with a serious fundraising push, Cox Media will spread its fundraising efforts over several weeks from December 4 to Sunday, December 31, highlighting a story about a Texas Children’s patient each day during a segment called “Hero of the Day.” The stories will air on The Eagle (106.9 & 107.5), Country Legends (97.1) and The New 93Q (92.9).

While listening, consider opening your heart and wallets and asking your family and friends to do the same. Every dollar donated to the radiothon will help Texas Children’s continue to fulfill its mission to create a healthier future for children and women throughout our global community by leading in patient care, education and research.
