98.1 KDD Radiothon

Since 2000, the 98.1 KDD Radiothon 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. This annual fundraiser has raised more than $11.5 million for the hospital since its beginning. 

This year's Radiothon will take place February 11-12. You can tune in to 98.1 KDD from 6 a.m. - 6 p.m. on those days to hear inspiring stories from Akron Children's patients and families. To make a donation as part of this year's Radiothon, go to or call 1-866-543-0981 during the event.

Sign up to be a Change Maker

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, Changemakers, donors and sponsors who give their time, talent and treasure to this annual event.
