The 22nd annual MIX 106.5 Radiothon benefiting Johns Hopkins Children’s Center has raised more $850,000, bringing the total raised to date to nearly $14 million.
The numbers were unveiled on Monday during the MIX Morning Show, following a three-day marathon broadcast from the hospital, Feb. 23 through Feb. 25.
“Even though this year’s Radiothon was one day shorter, our friends in the community once again have expressed their support unequivocally and the numbers speak for themselves,” said Hopkins Children’s Director George Dover, M.D., who joined DJs Jojo Girard, Reagan Warfield and Sarah Jacobs on the air for the early-morning announcement.
“For more than 20 years, our friends at MIX 106.5 have worked tirelessly to help advance Hopkins Children’s mission to change the course of medicine through scientific discovery and by delivering top-notch care to each and every patient — and we couldn’t do so without our friends in the community,” Dover added.
While MIX 106.5 has ended its broadcast, people may still pledge their support for Hopkins Children’s at www.hopkinschildrens.org/caring-for-kids.
Radiothon is part of the ongoing “Caring for Kids” multimedia campaign to support patient care at Hopkins Children’s.
