Children’s Miracle Network who have been opearting these events in the US and Canada for the past 10 years brought the concept to Ireland in 2007 and since then have raised 1.3 million euro for Children’s Hospitals in Dublin and Cork.
This event marks the charities first foray into the UK market and will benefit the Sick Kids Friends Foundation in Edinburgh. The event is being run in conjunction with the stations own charity Cash for Kids and will be called the Cash for Kids Radiothon.
Like the Cork Radiothon I do have an interest in this event but I can say with confidence that this is going to make great radio and will make a huge difference to the children who attend Sick Kids
You can listen in here from 6am Thursday until midday Saturday.
