Honolulu Radiothon Raises More Than $227,000 For Kapi'olani Medical Center For Women And Children

Honolulu’s iHeart Media radio station 92.3 KSSK spent two days and 28 total hours broadcasting their “Radiothon for Kids” from Kapi’olani Medical Center for Women & Children, airing stories of inspiration and hope across the Hawaiian Islands.  During this radiothon, thousands of listeners generously donated a total of $227,345.17!

Listeners weren’t the only ones pumped up hearing patient stories and interviews with families, staff and sponsors – all supporting this vital community asset.  Midday DJ Scotty B literally pushed himself to the limit with a challenge to his listeners…if they raised over $1000 in a certain hour, he’d drop and do 50 push-ups live on the air.

All funds generated through this two-day event stay right here in Hawaii to pay for equipment, training and programs that will benefit the thousands of children treated at Kapi’olani Medical Center for Women & Children each year.

Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals Radiothons are broadcasted on over 350 radio stations each year. Stations engage listeners with inspiring stories of Miracle Children from area communities and ask listeners to call in and pledge support for local kids.
