26th MIX 106.5 Radiothon Raises More than One Million Dollars for the Kids at Hopkins
Release Date: March 2, 2015
Preliminary result check presented to the DJs on Thursday night.
The 26th annual MIX 106.5 Radiothon benefitting the Johns Hopkins Children's Center raised more than $1,053,800 in two days, bringing the total raised to date to more than $18 million.
The number was unveiled Friday, Feb. 27, at the conclusion of the two-day broadcast.
"Our friends at MIX 106.5 never cease to pull through for the kids and families at Hopkins! We are grateful for and humbled by the unwavering support we receive year after year from listeners, callers and from our corporate friends," said Johns Hopkins Children's Center Director George Dover, M.D.
This year's broadcast marks a new record for the hospital and radio station, raising more than half a million dollars each day of the event. The last time the MIX 106.5 Radiothon raised more than $1 million the broadcast ran for four days.
"This year, we brought back a live phone bank with hundreds of volunteers from the Baltimore community, and the energy and enthusiasm helped elevate the event to a new level. This was integral in helpings us surpass the million-dollar mark," Dover added.
Funds raised during the two-day broadcast help fund the purchase of life-saving medical equipment and support patient care, but also help bring toys, books, games, and programs that provide a bit of normalcy in a place that is anything but.
"On behalf of our patients, families, physicians, nurses, and staff, I would like to thank the talented MIX 106.5 DJs and team that work tirelessly to help us pursue our mission of charting the course of pediatric medicine, one patient at a time," Dover said.
While MIX 106.5 has ended its broadcast, those who wish to pledge their support, can still do so at https://www.hopkinskids.org.
