Thank you, Montreal!

Caring for Kids radiothon raises $1.46-million

The Caring for Kids radiothon in aid of the Montreal Children's hospital is over for another year.

And it was another big success.

This time it raised $1,460,000.

The day long event on CJAD also involved sister stations, Virgin Radio, TSN 690 and CHOM FM.

"We never take things for granted because, you know, every year you never know how much you're going to raise with such a big event. But the community is so generous, it's unbelievable and we really thank also thre radio stations because without your help , without your generosity, it would never be possible" said Marie-Josée Gariepy is president Montreal Children's Hospital Foundation in an interveiw with CJAD News.

Among other things, the money will go toward purchasing much-needed equipment.

The radiothon has raised 19-million dollars over the years.

Please honour your pledges.
