Local Families To Benefit From 23rd Annual Children’s Miracle Network Radiothon
Published on: November 29, 2023
Watertown, NY – The 23rd Annual Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) Radiothon was held November 1-3, 2023 and raised over $120,000 to help children throughout the North Country.
Each year, Community Broadcasters’ stations The Border 106.7 and 94 Rock fill the airwaves with extraordinary stories of courage and hope from local CMN children and their families. These families open up to listeners about their children’s health challenges and explain how the program has helped them.
DJs Johnny Spezzano and Lance Hale spent the three days asking listeners to make a donation to help sick and injured children. James Leven, President of Community Broadcasters, said “It’s so gratifying that our team led by Johnny and Lancer have once again raised so much to help the kids and families of CMN. Great job, North Country!”
“The generosity of our community is inspiring.” said Angie VanWormer, Children’s Miracle Network Director, Samaritan Medical Center. “Thanks to the donations we received, CMN will be able to help even more children in need.”
Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals uses every dollar raised locally to support pediatric equipment and projects at Samaritan Medical Center. In addition, CMN of Northern New York provides direct financial assistance to families living in Jefferson, Lewis and St. Lawrence counties with a child facing a medical crisis for travel expenses and other out-of-pocket medical costs.
