Marquette, MI – April 30, 2015 – We’re about halfway through the first day of our annual Hardee’s St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital Radiothon and we thank each of you who called in and became Partners in Hope.
Your monthly donation of as little $20 can do so much for the kids at St. Jude. That’s $240 a year. Over the course of a year, your donation can assist St. Jude in providing FOUR parent necessity kits.
As you can imagine, parents who bring their children to St. Jude leave their homes in a hurry and might forget to pay day-to-day necessities like shampoo, razors, deodorant, toothbrushes, and lotion. These essentials are included in the parent necessity pack along with some fun items like crossword puzzles, word search books, pens and nail polish.
If you’ve already called and pledged your donation, we thank you for opening your heart and providing hope to families that are devastated by childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. If you haven’t called in yet, please consider doing so – the number to call is 361-WFXD (361-9393). The research and breakthroughs discovered at St. Jude are shared worldwide, including right here in the Upper Peninsula.
We thank Hardee’s, our Title Sponsor, for making it possible for our station to bring you the radiothon today and tomorrow. Our Angels of the Hour also deserve thanks and recognition. Today’s Angels are Upper Peninsula Health Plan, Marquette Community Credit Union, Northern Michigan Bank & Trust, Northern Michigan Physical Therapy and Wattson & Wattson Jewelers.
Thank you all for supporting the 2015 Hardee’s St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital Radiothon.
