A local radio station is holding their annual County Cares for St. Jude Kids Radiothon Wednesday and Thursday.
This is the 24th year that KIX106 has participated in the radiothon to raise money for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
Country Cares for St. Jude Kids began in 1989 after Randy Owen, lead singer of the music group ALABAMA, met St. Jude founder Danny Thomas.
Since its inception, Country Cares has grown to be one of the most successful radio fundraising events in the nation with more than 200 radio station partners raising more than $440 million in pledges.
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital has changed the way the world treats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases since opening 50 years ago. No family ever pays St. Jude for anything. For every child treated at St. Jude, thousands more are saved worldwide through St. Jude discoveries.
Call Thursday from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. at 1-800-411-9898 to donate.
