Posted By: Advancing Care

The 12th Annual 100.7 WHUD Radiothon for the Kids Cared For at Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital raised $352,000 in support of the Children’s Hospital, which is a member of the Westchester Medical Center Health Network.

The hospital provides children from the region and beyond with life-changing and lifesaving care. Throughout the broadcast, personalities from 100.7 WHUD interviewed children and families who returned to the hospital to share their stories of triumph over significant medical challenges with the help of the Children’s Hospital.

Donations were raised through pledges called into WHUD, as well as those made online and through donations from corporate sponsors like ShopRite, which raised more than $150,000 during and after the radiothon.

100.7 WHUD has been a consistent supporter of the Hudson Valley’s children’s hospital for more than a decade. The radiothon featured personalities Mike Bennett and Kacey Morabito Grean, Tom Furci and Andy Bale.
