Cincinnati’s top Spanish language radio station, La Mega 97.7 FM, will host its second “For the Kids” radiothon April 30 – May 1 to benefit the children and families of Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center (CCHMC).
During the two-day fundraiser, which airs 6 a.m .- 7 p.m. on April 30 and May 1, listeners will learn about CCHMC and its Center for Better Health and Nutrition, while La Mega 97.7 FM staff and on-air talent will share stories from patient Champions and their families. Families are invited to call in during this time to make a donation or pledge, as well as share their own stories about CCHMC. All donations will stay local and proceeds will benefit CCHMC’s Center for Better Health and Nutrition, a family-based program that helps children and adolescents combat obesity.
CCHMC is a member of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, a national nonprofit organization that helps local children’s hospitals raise funds through national, regional and local campaigns like the radiothon with La Mega 97.7 FM. Operators at 1-800- 234-6217 will assist callers in Spanish to make their pledge or donation via credit or debit card or by check/money order. Donations are tax-deductible contributions.
