The Radiothon raised $1,358,000

Wednesday, May 29, 2019 was the occasion for the 16th annual Caring for Kids Radiothon. 20 families from across Quebec shared stories of hope, strength and courage with listeners.

Many of you responded to the call and showed your support as the excitement mounted in the P.K. Subban Atrium at the Children's. One of the highlights was when Madison returned to the microphone to tell us about the remission of her leukemia; she was back, with hair! Another was hearing Liam and his mom talked about his recent heart transplant, or when Brenda and Mark showed great courage telling us about the loss of their baby Gabrielle. We sincerely thank these 20 families who took the time to travel that day, some very early, to share their moving stories!

Your immense generosity has even spread to patients' rooms! Your numerous calls raised $1,358,000 for the hospital's most urgent needs. Thank you!

We thank the Bell Media radio stations, CJAD 800, 95.9 Virgin Radio, CHOM 97 7 and TSN Radio, as well as our Official Partner Dormez-vous? and Miracle Hour Sponsors, Air Canada Foundation, A Bunch of Moms, Larente Baksh & Associates-TD Group, Otsuka, Revolution Textiles & Home Decor, SNC-Lavalin and the Tenaquip Foundation. Thank you also to all the volunteers who answered phones helping to ensure the event’s success.
