Each year, for two days, our group of Tuscaloosa radio stations Including of course 92.9 WTUG gives everything we have to try and raise as much money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

February 15th and 17th of this year we’ll be at it again with the annual St. Jude Radiothon presented by Yourway Furniture. From 5am - 6 pm each day, I'll be on tomorrow Morning at 5am - 9am and Back on again at 3pm - 6pm. We will cry, laugh and celebrate together as we learn the miracles that go on within the vast walls of this amazing place.

Entertainer Danny Thomas started St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in 1962 with one thought in mind, to treat and cure children suffering from all forms of cancer and never charge their families for any of it!

In 1962 when the hospital opened the most common form of childhood cancer, Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia had a 4% survival rate. Now, in 2017 there is a 94% survival rate! The doctors and researchers are working my friend; I’ve seen them first hand.

I don’t know about you but as a parent I never want to hear those dreaded four words that too many parents hear, “Your child has cancer.” I want to help St. Jude find cures to stop this faceless disease and make sure “no child dies in the dawn of life.”

During these two days, you’ll have the chance to become a Partner In Hope or renew your status as a Partner In Hope, but If you absolutely can’t wait feel free to click here.

Please save the dates and join us on March 3rd and 4th for the St. Jude Radiothon presented by Yourway Furniture!
