The 19th annual MIX 106.5 Radiothon for the Johns Hopkins Children’s Center has raised a record $1.1 million during its four-day marathon broadcast, bringing the total raised to date to more than $11.6 million.
The numbers were unveiled Sunday evening, only minutes after the Morning Show team signed off the air following four days of broadcasting live from Hopkins Children’s and MIX 106.5 studios in Mt. Washington.
DJs Jojo Girard and Reagan Warfield and the Morning Show team presented a check for $1,143,577 to Hopkins Children’s leadership and staff.
“Because of the passion, compassion and the talent of the MIX 106.5 staff, these four days have been not only exciting and fun, but they have brought promise and hope to our patients,” said Hopkins Children’s Director George Dover, M.D. “A big thank you to everyone who donated their time and money to Hopkins Children’s. We wouldn’t be here without you.”
During Radiothon, patients and families shared their stories of tragedy and triumph over medical adversity, while caregivers offered an inside peek into the everyday work that makes up the cutting-edge medicine practiced at Hopkins Children’s
