It’s Lovely Weather to Help Make Miracles Happen Together

Annual Drive for Miracles Radiothon Set for December 10 through 12

December 01, 2009

The 100.5 FM Drive for Miracles Radiothon, an annual radio marathon held to share stories from the Finger Lakes Region’s only children’s hospital with the community, will fall during that special time of year when feelings of warmth and goodwill abound. This year’s Radiothon will be broadcast 5:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 10, and Friday, Dec. 11, from Strong Memorial Hospital’s main lobby and 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 12, from Eastview Mall.

“We are fortunate to have a wonderful community that harbors a generous spirit throughout the year,” said Betsy Findlay, associate director of the Office of Advancement for Golisano Children’s Hospital at the University of Rochester Medical Center. “This time of year can be especially trying for patients and their families, which makes it a great time to come together and rally support for them.”

There are a lot of ways to get involved with this year’s Radiothon, which will be hosted by 100.5 The Drive DJs JP and Julie. Check out the opportunities below to see how you can start helping today.
