NOW: St. Jude’s Radiothon raises money for childhood cancer research

MISHAWAKA, Ind. – The Annual St. Jude’s Radiothon got underway on Thursday as people from across Michiana made donations toward childhood cancer research.

Employees with B100 and Federated Media took calls all day on Thursday and will take calls on Friday. ABC57's own Maci Tetrick was there lending a hand and taking calls.

The B100 has raised over five million dollars for St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis in the past 26 years.

Brittany Bailey, the night DJ at B100, declared that the Radiothon thus far has already been a success.

"Things have been going so great day 1 of our St. Jude Radiothon," Bailey said. "We encourage you to become a partner in hope and every year the community steps up to make sure that we give as much as we can to the kids of St. Jude and the researchers who are working around the clock to find a cure. They made so many breakthroughs but they are not done. They are paving the way and you are helping make that happen.”

If you want to help find a cure for childhood cancer, you can call into the Radiothon on Friday. The number is 1-800-779-5121.
