The Radiothon raised $1,321,603 to help sick kids get back on their feet

The Montreal Children’s Hospital Foundation and radio stations CJAD 800, 95.9 Virgin Radio, CHOM 97 7 and TSN Radio 690 are proud to announce the 2021 edition of the Caring for Kids Radiothon, held on August 26, raised ­­­­­$1,321,603 for the Children’s.

Since 2004, the Foundation and its invaluable radio partners have raised over $26 million during this flagship event to help ensure sick children and their families continue to receive exceptional, highly specialized medical care.

Live on air from outside the Hospital, 21 young patients and their parents shared their poignant stories; talked about the extraordinary care provided by the Hospital’s health professionals.

Scores of listeners from across the city and province joined the Circle of Hugs with a monthly donation of $20 or more, and the total raised demonstrates their generosity. All donations go to the Healthy Kids Fund to support the Hospital’s most urgent needs, including purchasing medical and surgical equipment and funding for innovative projects and services. The donations from generous Quebecers will ensure sick children continue to receive the best care and our researchers continue to discover new cures and treatments.

“I am so grateful to the families and children for sharing their heart-warming stories about the excellent, innovative care they received at the Children’s. I am awed by their courage and perseverance,” says Mme. Renée Vézina, President of The Montreal Children’s Hospital Foundation. “I am also sincerely grateful to Bell Media, the radio station hosts, producers and everyone who makes this radiothon a success year after year.”

The Children’s Foundation thanks the Bell Media radio stations, our phone-bank partner Dormez-vous and our Miracle Hour sponsors: Larente Baksh & Associates at TD Wealth, Otsuka, Revolution Textiles & Home Décor, Rio Tinto, SNC-Lavalin, The Tenaquip Foundation and Traffic Tech.
