Tune in to Mix 101.5 WRAL-FM from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., Tuesday and Wednesday, when Bill Jordan and Lynda Loveland will be broadcasting live from Duke Children’s Hospital and Health Center as part of the annual Radiothon, which raises money for pediatric research, patient care and support programs.
You’ll hear first-hand from parents who will share how their children are beating incredible medical odds, as well as young patients who are determined to persevere through dozens of medical tests, treatments and surgeries. You’ll also hear from donors and friends of Duke Children's including Coach Cutcliffe, Coach K and Coach P.
You can make a difference by donating online or by calling 866-684-1015 or 919-684-1015 during the Radiothon to make a pledge.
