The Caring for Kids Radiothon raised $1,460,000!
The Montreal Children’s Hospital Foundation and radio stations CJAD 800, CHOM 97 7, Virgin Radio 95.5 and TSN 690, are proud to announce that the 2014 edition of the Caring for Kids Radiothon raised an outstanding $1,460,000 for the Montreal Children’s Hospital.
Live from The Children’s, more than thirty patients and their families courageously shared how the Hospital’s professionals saved their lives.
Responding to the call of their favourite hosts, thousands of listeners joined the Circle of Hugs with a monthly donation of $20. The final result clearly demonstrates their generosity. In 11 years, more than $18.9 million has been raised for The Children’s thanks to CJAD 800, CHOM 97 7, Virgin Radio 95.9 and TSN 690.
All funds raised will go to the Healthy Kids Fund to meet the most urgent needs of the hospital, which include medical and surgical equipment and funding for innovative projects.
The Montreal Children’s Hospital Foundation thanks Bell Media radio stations CJAD 800, CHOM 97 7, Virgin Radio 95.9 and TSN 690 as well as phone bank sponsor Dormez-Vous and Miracle Hour sponsors A Bunch of Moms, Cinemas Guzzo, Fondation Air Canada, Larente Baksh Group, Employees of Omnitrans, Revolution Textiles, Tenaquip, Scotiabank and Shire Canada. Thank you also to Air Canada and the dozens of volunteers who answered phones helping to ensure the event’s success.
