Radiothon for Kids

The Upstate Foundation’s Radiothon for Kids raised more than $196,000 from callers all across Central New York this week to benefit sick and injured children at Upstate Golisano Children’s Hospital. The Radiothon was supported by CNY Central and iHeartradio stations, 570WSYR and Y94, which provided live broadcasts about the Radiothon from the hospital lobby.

The Upstate Foundation is partnering with iHeartMedia for this annual fundraiser that supports pediatric services at Upstate Golisano Children's Hospital. “It’s heartwarming to know that the Central New York community rallies each year to support sick and injured children,” said Toni Gary, assistant vice president for development at the Upstate Foundation.

Radiothon for Kids has raised funds that support unmet needs like meals and gas cards for families with hospitalized children, car seats when needed, comfort items, distraction toys, new equipment, and items for the Upstate Golisano Children’s Hospital Child Life Program—iPads, Chrome books, kiddie transport vehicles, and so much more.

Since Radiothon began in 2003, the event has raised more than $2 million for Upstate Golisano Children’s Hospital.
