UNM Children's Hospital Annual Radiothon, broadcast live on KPEK-FM 100.3 - The Peak from the 6th floor of UNM Children's Hospital, will be held Thursday-Saturday, Feb. 27 - March 1. Jackie, Tony, Donnie and other on-air personalities host the event for three days from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. talking with patients, doctors, nurses and listeners.

The Radiothon supports the Children's Miracle Network Fund at UNM Children's Hospital. In the last eight years, nearly $2.5 million in pledges have been generated from community support during the Radiothon. The Radiothon helps fund programs and state-of-the-art equipment that saves children's lives. These families have benefited from the generosity of listeners in past Radiothon events who opened their hearts and wallets so equipment and services needed to treat the tiniest patients were made available right here in New Mexico.

Listeners "pledge" their support by calling in or visiting the Radiothon website.

UNM Children's Hospital treats more than 60,000 children each year and cares for children from every county in New Mexico regardless of their family's ability to pay.
