"Have a Heart, Do Your Part" Radiothon

Akron Radiothon

Since 2000, the Have a Heart, Do Your Part Radiothon, presented by 98.1 KDD, has provided patients and families the opportunity to share their personal stories on the air, prompting hundreds of listeners to call in with pledges to Akron Children's Hospital.

The 2018 Have a Heart, Do Your Part Radiothon will broadcast live from Akron Children's Hospital Feb. 8 - 10.

Pledges are used to buy child-size medical equipment and to fund patient care, community outreach and research. Our success would not be possible without the dedicated volunteers, Change Bandits, donors and sponsors who give their time, talent and treasure to this annual event.

The radiothon kicks off with the help of our Change Bandits - individuals, companies, schools and churches -  who "hold up" their friends, family and co-workers for pocket change. Their change will be collected at our Change Bandit Bash the night before radiothon starts.

Sign up to be a Change Bandit.
