Care From The Heart Radio-a-thon
The 10th Annual Radio-a-thon is a live broadcast event that takes place in the atrium of the Chinook Regional Hospital. Throughout the day, for eleven straight hours, our six (amazing and generous!) local radio stations chat on air with doctors and nurses, administrators of the hospital, and patients to share personal stories of the impact that donations made to the CRH Foundation have in our community. The generosity of our donors is felt throughout the hospital, in every department, on every floor and in the smiles of our patients.
A sincere thank you goes out to all the radio stations who champion this day, B93.3FM, 94.1 CJOC, Country 95.5FM, 98.1 THE BRIDGE, 106.7 Rock and KISS 107.7. These stations proudly donate their airtime, not only on event day, but in the time leading up to as well to help generate some buzz throughout our Southern Alberta community .
Your gift will be used in part to fund strategically identified equipment, programs and educational opportunities for our local hospital and health care professionals, helping bring the best of care close to home.
Care from the Heart Day brings our community together and every dollar donated adds up to a remarkable total. The funds raised in one day helps the Chinook Regional Hospital provide outstanding care throughout the year. Since the very first Radio-a-thon nine years ago, we can proudly share that over $1,960,000 has been raised.
If you have any questions, would like further information or would like to arrange a time for a cheque presentation at Care from the Heart Day, please call Shonna Lamb, Development Coordinator at 403-388-6001 or email: email@example.com
