Right now; thousands of dollars in Central Oregon are pouring in to help children who are fighting cancer and other serious diseases. It's one of the most successful radio fundraising events in America and its happening right now on our sister station Country 99.7 The Mountain. The Mountain has been involved in "Country Cares for St. Jude Kids" for the past five years and they've raised more than $146,000. St. Jude Kid’s spokesperson Kelly Hutsell says Actor Danny Thomas started St. Jude's as a top-notch medical research facility in Memphis. The cutting edge research done there is then shared with other hospitals throughout the country. "His goal again was to find the cures so that no child would suffer anywhere. So all the protocols, all the research studies, that are taking place in Memphis and that are working are then being funneled out to local hospitals. SO there are several local hospitals here in Oregon that use our protocols that are helping families that then don’t have to fly to Memphis. They don’t have to go through the trouble of uprooting their lives, uprooting their families lives and being misplaced for an extended period of time.” So far the local Radiothon has raised about $2400 in its first few hours. It’s going on today until 6pm and tomorrow from 6am to 7pm. You can donate online by going to the Mountain website ; click here.
