Cure Kids Cancer Raises $325,000

After two days and the work of dozens of dedicated people, the Results Radio Cure Kids Cancer Radiothon set a new record for Sanford Children’s Hospital.

The annual event now in it’s 10th year, which brings together staff of Sanford Health, Results Radio, as well as families and volunteers, works to raise money to benefit children undergoing cancer treatment at Sanford Children’s Hospital.

During the two day event, which began Thursday and ran through Friday, staff of Mix 97-3, KIKN-FM, B102.7 and Hot 104.7 broadcast live for 12 hours each day. They carefully blended a mix of heart-tugging interviews with families of children undergoing treatment, or from those who have lost children to the disease, to bring home the pain and yes, the joy, that comes from fighting cancer. All the while asking residents of Sioux Falls to reach into their hearts and wallets to help support Sanford Children’s Hospital.

Staff from Sanford Health helped put together and organize the event, which took place inside the Sanford Children’s Hospital, or Castle. Volunteers of all ages and from around the area manned the phones, and helped entertain family and friends during the events open house event on Friday.

This year, people of the Sioux Empire did that and more, raising $325,784 during the Cure Kids Cancer campaign, a new high for the event.

Since the Sanford Children’s Hospital does not charge any family for treatment, 100% of the money raised goes to supporting families with children undergoing cancer treatment at the facility.

However, the true success of the event was not in the money raised, but in the sight of so many former patients given the opportunity to once again be the happy, vibrant children again.
