The 2014 Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals Radiothon benefiting Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt will take place Dec. 11-12.

Tune in to WRVW 107.5 The River for the “River of Hope Radiothon,” which will broadcast live from the performance stage at Children’s Hospital from 6 – 7 a.m. on both days.

On-air personalities will interview patients, families and hospital staff who will share their stories and experiences at Children’s Hospital. Listeners are encouraged to make a pledge to benefit the hospital.

Last year, the event raised more than $124,000 in two days.

Since 2005, the River of Hope Radiothon has raised more than $1.5 million in pledges and has unified the surrounding community by providing outstanding emotional and financial support to Children’s Hospital, the local CMN hospital.
