Radio-thon held to raise money for children's hospital

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Hope was broadcast from the lobby of Kosair Children's Hospital where four local radio stations teamed up to raise money for a great cause.

Thursday's collaboration was part of the fourth annual Kosair Children's Hospital Radio-thon.

The stations asked listeners to chip in to try to raise $1 million for the hospital.

Courtney Shewmaker with the Children's Miracle Network, said, "They give it to the area's greatest need so whatever the hospital needs we are able to do that we're able to buy chemo chairs for the kids and monitors for the tiniest babies and just all the need there is here at the hospital."

The event raised more than $750 thousand in 2011.
