The 21st annual iHeartMedia Cares for Kids Radiothon begins

The sounds of phones ringing, bells dinging, Christmas music and laughter filled the lobby of Children’s Hospital of Georgia Thursday for the 21st annual iHeartMedia Cares for Kids Radiothon.

Children’s Hospital’s biggest annual fundraiser airs on WBBQ 104.3, 105.7 The Bull, and Kiss 96.3.  Every dollar raised stays in the Augusta area and pays for equipment, research, programs and care for the more than 75,000 kids who visit Children’s, a Children’s Miracle Network member hospital, each year.

Radiothon will continue 6 a.m.-7 p.m. Friday and 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, but donations will continue to be accepted online at
