The annual Primary Children’s KSL Radiothon that airs beginning tomorrow afternoon at 4:00 on KSL Newsradio 1160 will raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for charity care at Primary Children’s Medical Center.
The money is needed, especially as the region’s population continues to grow and the number of children requiring skilled medical attention increases. It’s nice to know a hundred percent of the money raised during the annual radiothon helps children directly. None of it is used for fund-raising or to cover administrative costs.
Primary Children’s is a hospital that remains committed to treating all children regardless of the ability to pay. Last year, for example, the hospital provided more than $10.3 million dollars in donation supported and hospital sponsored charity care to thousands of young, often bewildered patients.
Few things tug at the heartstrings more than the sight of an ill child, struggling through adversity to overcome challenges not quite understood. And few experiences bring greater joy than the miracle of healing and seeing that child healthy and strong.
Such miracles occur daily at Primary Children’s Medical Center.
KSL encourages you to tune in tomorrow afternoon through Wednesday at 6 p.m. to KSL Newsradio1160. If you’re inclined, call in with a pledge and experience the satisfaction of knowing you’re helping a child.
