The Hospital for Sick Children hosts largest radiothon in Canada

Toronto - The Hospital for Sick Children hosts the largest radiothon in Canada on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday (April 13 to 15). Sick Kids and Standard Radio are asking radio listeners across the GTA to open their hearts and make a gift to the hospital. Presented by Foresters, the money raised through this three-day event will be used for the highest priority needs of the hospital.

Newstalk 1010 CFRB and Mix 99.9 kick off the radiothon on Wednesday. They will be joined by sister station 97.3 EZ Rock on Thursday in broadcasting live from the Atrium at Sick Kids until Friday at 6 p.m.

Last year, the radiothon raised $2.3 million and broke the record for the most money raised by a radiothon in North America.

More than 200 patients, families, and staff will share their touching stories and experiences over the three days.
