The Children's Miracle Network and radio station 107.5 The River will hold the "River of Hope Radiothon" to benefit the Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt March 8-10.

The sixth annual Radiothon will be broadcast live from the Children's Hospital Performance Stage with radio personalities Woody, Jim, Madison and Ryno , and will feature interviews with more than 100 patients and families.

On March 8-9, the broadcast will be from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m.; and on March 10, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Last year, the event raised $160,236.

Volunteers to man the phone bank during this year's Radiothon are needed. If you would like to volunteer, please contact Kellie Schmeal at 322-4932 or
