(02/07/13) - Thursday, our friends at WIOG 102.5 FM kicked off their annual Children's Miracle Network radiothon at Hurley Medical Center. The money raised will help families in need at the hospital.
"It's great to see the people come together, the businesses, the miracle families," said Rick Warmbold, president of the Hurley Foundation.
"We've done this for a number of years and we've gotten to know the kids and families and it's just like a reunion," said Rachel Geddes, of 102.5 WIOG.
Archer Granger is a CMN recipient. The staff at Hurley saved his life after he was in a horrific accident.
Now, he's a thriving young boy, sharing his story on the radio and encouraging people to call in.
"It's a big family, they take care of the kids, they take care of the families everything," said Jen Granger, Archer's mom.
Just one donation, big or small, is encouraged. It stays local and could potentially help someone you love.
"Make a difference, pick up that phone, call, help our kids, you never know who or when you're helping. It could be your grandchild, it could be the child next door, you just never know," Warmbold said.
The radiothon continues until 7 p.m. Thursday and again from 6 a.m. -7 p.m. Friday.
ABC12 is proud to host the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals Telethon each Spring.
