Madison, Wisconsin - The 15th annual Radiothon, a fundraiser for American Family Children's Hospital, enters its final day.


Midwest Family Broadcasting and many of its radio stations have been hosting a three-day event that ends today.


In previous years, radio hosts would gather in the lobby at the children's hospital and broadcast from 6am to 7pm interviewing parents and patients who have been treated at the children's hospital as they share their stories of survival and courage. Like many other traditions during the COVID-19 pandemic, that storytelling has gone virtual this year.


The money raised will help programs that assist patients and families. Last year the event raised $711,278.


The 111-bed children's hospital is a full-service, comprehensive hospital that cares for the sickest and most seriously injured infants, children and adolescents. The hospital includes a 26-bed Level IV neonatal intensive care unit, a nationally ranked cardiovascular department, a dedicated pediatric imaging suit that provides ultra-low-dose imaging and a state-of-the-art hybrid catheterization and angiography suite.
