Nationwide Children’s Hospital will welcome Radio One’s local radio stations Power 107.5 and Magic 106. 3 Friday, April 17, for the annual Radio One Radiothon that helps sick and injured kids receiving care and treatment at Nationwide Children’s, a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital.
The Radio One Radiothon provides an opportunity for Nationwide Children’s to benefit from an event that will showcase the extensive reach of the diverse medical miracles happening every day at Nationwide Children’s.
Nationwide Children’s Hospital and Radio One Columbus invites the public to put their money where the miracles are and support the life-saving research and care taking place, right here at Nationwide Children’s. Listeners can call 614-722-3801 or visit giving.nationwidechildrens.org
to make a gift.
“Radio One Columbus has been a long-standing partner and friend to families throughout Central Ohio and especially the kids at Nationwide Children’s,” Sophia Fifner, Director, Corporate Philanthropy, Nationwide Children’s Hospital Foundation, said.” The Radiothon is an exceptional opportunity for Radio One’s listeners to shine and support stations that truly reflects and represents our central Ohio community.”
Radiothons have been an integral part of Nationwide Children’s fundraising efforts, dating back to 1986. Today, Radiothons continue to be an important element to Nationwide Children’s fundraising strategy and have contributed millions of dollars in support. As one of the largest not-for-profit freestanding pediatric health care networks in the country, this event helps Nationwide Children’s accomplish its mission of providing care to all children and their families, regardless of their ability to pay.
