The University of New Mexico Children's Hospital is looking for "Change Champions".

 Participants in the Change Champions program will collect change from friends, family, neighbors, and co-workers to donate to the UNM Children's Hospital.  This fundraiser will be conducted as a contest.  The individual/ business that raises the most change will receive a live remote at the winning company, hosted by John and Jackie of 93.3 KOB FM.  Schools are encouraged to join as well.  The class that raises the most money will get a party with John and Jackie.  This program is a way for the community to get involved with helping New Mexico's sick children.

      The UNM Children's Hospital will provide participants with a bag for change collection, as well as the chance to make a difference in the lives of sick children in New Mexico.  The program will run from March 20- April 19 and will kick off the annual UNM Children's Hospital Radiothon, hosted by 93.3 KOB FM.  The Radiothon is an annual fundraiser conducted by the UNM Children's Hospital in conjunction with Children's Miracle Network.  All proceeds from the Radiothon go to the Children's Hospital.

   Participants in the Change Champions Program can bring their donated change to Cottonwood Mall on Saturday, April 19 from 10:00am-2:00pm.

  For more information on the Change Champions Program, please contact Danielle Sengel dsengel@salud.unm.edu or Sonya Warwick at swarwick@salud.unm.edu, or call in participation to 277-5685.
