The N.C. Children's Promise Radiothon

On November 20, 2014, supporters from across the state donated to N.C. Children’s Hospital in Chapel Hill through the 13th annual N.C. Children’s Promise Radiothon, raising a total of $103,923.97 when combined with the Country for Kids concert, the online auction, and the Grifols sponsorship.

Radiothon 2014

The daylong event featured live broadcasts from the Children’s lobby by Curtis Media Group radio stations. Our media partners aired poignant stories from our patients, families and their caregivers from 6 a.m. through 7 p.m., while volunteers took calls, pledges and online gifts. Through the efforts of the day—with your support—we raised $103,924, which brings the year-long, unrestricted fundraising total to $1,066,527! You can still be a champion of a future champion by making a gift.

Additionally, UNC Children's and the Curtis Media Group received a commendation for Radiothon from Governor Pat McCrory on behalf of the State of North Carolina. We are deeply grateful for this honor.
