AURORA - Alice's 36 Hours for Kids raised $1.8 million for the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals benefiting Children's Hospital Colorado. The three-day radiothon, broadcast live on Alice 105.9 radio, wrapped up at 6 p.m. Friday, and a big check was presented by staff of The Children's Miracle Network Hospitals and Alice 105.9. The record-breaking fundraiser continues to keep Colorado as one of of the top Children's Miracle Network radiothons in the country.
For the twelfth year in a row, Alice's on-air talent broke away from regular programming to interview past and present patients of the hospital, play audio montages of children's life-altering and inspirational stories and solicit their listenership to give money. Thousands of listeners became "Miracle Makers," choosing to give $15 a month for a year.
In the twelve years that Alice 105.9 has teamed up with The Children's Miracle Network, more than $13 million has been raised for Children's Hospital Colorado.
