Help Kids Everwhere

Kaylee and Tess are both recovering from life-changing reconstructive surgeries performed at Nationwide Children's Hospital. Their families turned here for hope and the specialized treatments the girls need now and in the years ahead.

Kaylee traveled 2,300 miles to get here from her home in Nevada. While Tess traveled just 11 miles from her home in Gahanna. They’re both just like countless other kids who arrive here every day from around the country, and the world, for life-saving care made possible by cutting-edge research. That's why giving to Nationwide Children's is so important. Because your gift this holiday season not only helps kids here, it helps kids everywhere.

Sunny 95's Annual Radiothon!
It’s that time of year again! Sunny 95’s annual radiothon benefiting Nationwide Children’s Hospital is just around the corner, and they’re dedicating 95 hours to help sick and injured kids at the hospital. The radiothon will kick off on Monday, December 1, 2014 with special on-air-giving promotions running throughout the week. Then, Dino & Stacy will culminate the radiothon on Thursday & Friday, December 4 - 5, 2014 with a live two-day radio marathon at Polaris Fashion Place. Help them jump start their fundraising goal by making a donation today. For more information about this year’s event, please contact Sophia Fifner (614) 355-5422.
