MIX 101.5 WRAL-FM Radiothon
Duke Children's Hospital & Health Center
The 2014 20th annual MIX 101.5 Radiothon for Duke Children's raised $1,070,242. Dr. Ira Cheifetz, Interim Chair of the Duke Department of Pediatrics and Interim Chief Medical Officer of Duke Children's Hospital, and Mike Chase and Lynda Loveland of WRAL FM's MIX 101.5, are joined by team members to celebrate reaching this milestone.
The MIX 101.5 WRAL-FM Radiothon is Duke Children’s Hospital & Health Center’s largest single fundraising event each year. This signature event raises funds to benefit children’s programs and further support the continuation of excellence within the medical and surgical programs housed at Duke Children’s Hospital & Health Center.
MIX 101.5 has raised $16,448,658 million dollars for the kids at Duke Children's over the past 20 years thanks to the compassion and caring of MIX 101.5 listeners, our sponsors, patient families and hundreds of volunteers.
Your gift supports valuable programs and services for our patients and their families, such as:
- preoperative educational brochures, teaching dolls and videos for children;
- a reading program to promote early literacy skills among children at highest risk for school failure;
- craft supplies for the Child and Adolescent Life program;
- enuresis alarms for urology patients;
- meal and parking passes and phone cards to assist low income families with local needs while their children are at Duke Children’s;
- magazine subscriptions, toys and games for clinic areas;
- weekly visits to both inpatient and clinic areas by clowns, mimes, magicians and singers in our Make 'em Smile program.
