MADISON - Compelling stories of children who are being treated for-or have survived-serious medical conditions were the focus of the Champions for Kids Radiothon benefitting American Family Children's Hospital.
The event raised $475,645 for American Family Children's Hospital.
John Flint and Tammy Lee, morning air personalities at Madison's 96.3 Star Country, hosted the 39-hour event in the hospital lobby.
During the Radiothon, John and Tammy interviewed children and families from Wisconsin and other states who beat the odds against cancer, heart disease, traumatic injuries and other medical conditions.
This is the second straight year John and Tammy have hosted Radiothon.
Last year's Radiothon raised more than $440,000 for the hospital.
American Family Children's Hospital is a complete children's medical and surgical center with a pediatric intensive care unit, an internationally recognized transplant surgery program, a children's cancer center, and a family-friendly atmosphere.
