MONTREAL, April 29 /CNW Telbec/ - Today, as part of Astral Media Radio's national day of giving, dozens of powerful stories will be broadcast on Virgin Radio 96, CHOM 97.7 and CJAD 800, from 5:30am to 7:00pm.
Once again, the dedicated broadcasters of these three stations will devote their energy and talent to the Caring for Kids Radiothon, in order to collect much needed funds for the most urgent needs of The Montreal Children's Hospital of the McGill University Health Centre.
The stations' regular programming will be replaced with stirring testimonials from sick children and their parents, highlighting the expertise and the caring touch that characterize The Children's. Media are invited to witness this incredibly moving experience first hand during broadcast hours.
New this year, listeners will be able to view interviews on YouTube and follow the event on Facebook and Twitter, offering them a glimpse of this incredible event. To donate, call the Radiothon Phone Bank at 514-939-KIDS (5437) or 1-888-939-KIDS during Radiothon hours or give online at childrenfoundation.com. Thank you!
