Radio stations from across central Mississippi are joining forces for the 12th annual Mississippi Miracles Radiothon beginning tomorrow in Fondren. The event benefits the Blair E. Batson Hospital For Children through Friday, March 1 at 7 pm.

Joining the Radiothon this year are Jackson’s Jack FM station and Vicksburg stations KHits and River 101. These stations, along with Jackson radio stations Y 101.7, US 96.3 and Mix 98.7. will broadcast live from the lobby of Batson Children’s Hospital. Meridian stations 97 OKK, Kiss 104.1, Q101 and 105.7 The Beat will broadcast from Meridian.

Hosts from all stations will interview current and former patients and their families and hospital staff who care for them, asking listeners to call in pledges to benefit the hospital. The money is used to fund equipment, research and programs that ensure the hospital is able to provide the most advanced level of medical care for Mississippi’s children.

The numbers to call and make a donation are 601-984-KIDS (5437) or toll-free 888-681-KIDS (5437).
