The 23nd annual MIX 106.5 Radiothon benefitting Johns Hopkins Children’s Center raised nearly $866,000 during its three-day broadcast last week, bringing the total raised to date to nearly $15 million. The numbers were unveiled Monday morning on the MIX 106.5 Morning Show with DJs Jojo Girard and Reagan Warfield.
“On behalf of the patients and their families and the nurses, physicians and staff who care for them, I want to express wholeheartedly our gratitude to MIX, its listeners and the community for their unwavering support,” said Johns Hopkins Children’s Center Director George Dover, M.D. “Your support allows Johns Hopkins Children’s Center to continue to do what it does best: Charting the course of pediatric science and redefining the future of childhood health, one child at a time,” Dover added. “Your donations allow children to remain children, even in the hospital and even in medical crisis."
While MIX 106.5 has ended its broadcast, those who wish may still pledge their support online.
