FARGO — The Sanford Health Foundation is hosting its 23rd annual Cares for Kids Radiothon fundraiser Thursday, Jan. 26, and Friday, Jan. 27.

It will be taking place on radio stations in Fargo and surrounding areas from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. both days.

The programming will highlight stories of former Sanford Children's patients and their families from throughout the region.

Hillery Mork, the lead development director for the Sanford Health Foundation, says the event grows every year and they are hopeful that will continue.

"We're really hoping to beat last year's total, which was over $170,000," Mork said. "That's really our goal, so fingers crossed that the phones keep ringing."


Mork also says the funding brought in from the Radiothon is important because it supports children in the hospital by funding morale boosting programs.

"It could be our child life specialist, our hospital teacher, we have music therapy. And all those- those programs are so important to help children cope and to really give them the best experience while they're in the hospital."

100% of the proceeds go towards local Sanford Children's programs. Donations can be made by calling in during the event, or online .
