FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - Wednesday, Feb. 27 through Friday, Feb. 29, from 6 a.m. - 6 p.m. Jackie, Tony and Donnie from 100.3 The Peak will be broadcasting live from the sixth floor of the UNM Children’s Hospital, conducting their annual Radiothon to benefit UNM Children’s Hospital, a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital.
Each year Children’s Miracle Network partners with Albuquerque’s favorite radio station, 100.3 The Peak, to raise money and awareness for UNM Children’s Hospital; where tiny and big miracles take place every day.
For 12 hours - three days in a row, Jackie, Tony and Donnie talk to parents and children who have triumphed, overcoming the odds of survival and the doctors and nurses who cared for them.
These families have benefited from the generosity of the many listeners who have opened their hearts and wallets so that the equipment and services needed to treat the tiniest patients are available right here in New Mexico.Listeners are asked to help make miracles happen by calling in their pledge to (505) 272-1003 or 1-866-811-1003. Log on to www.1003thepeak.com for more information on the Radiothon.
Also, those wanting to make a donation toward Radiothon can visit any of these seven Albuquerque restaurants (Applebees, Boston’s Gourmet Pizza, Golden Corral, Hot Dog On A Stick, Jersey Jacks, Red Robin, and Texas Land and Cattle) on Thursday, Feb. 28. Each restaurant will donate a percentage of their sales from that day toward the Radiothon.
