On March 18th and 19th, 2020, Y107 held our 15th annual Missouri Credit Union Miracles for Kids Radiothon. Things were a little different. For starters, we were live from our large conference room. Two days and just over $214,734.04 later, it’s fair to say Y107 and Mid-Missouri believe in miracles!
Both days were full of laughs, tears, hugs, and entertainment from some of the miracles. We talked with families and hospital staff, shared personal stories and asked listeners to open their hearts and donate to help save the lives of kids. We held Zoom interviews with many families who’ve been helped by the hospital. As always, it was an exciting time to see how far the kids have come since their accident, emergency, or diagnosis. Every year, we have the opportunity to meet new families too; and while we wish we could meet them under different circumstances, our hearts always swell with admiration of their strength.
One of the greatest things about the Radiothon is that all the money stays local; every single last cent. The money raised supports the purchase of life-saving equipment and supports programmatic needs at MU Health Care’s Children’s Hospital that benefits pediatric patients from every county in Missouri.
Each year the Y107/Missouri Credit Union Miracles for Kids Radiothon proves to be one of the most mentally, physically, and emotionally draining times of the year for everyone involved, but it’s also exciting, and rewarding and we wouldn’t have it any other way. Thank you to all of our Y107 listeners for making miracles happen!
