WHO: Dave Luczak and Carole Caine from 96.5 FM WKLH and Children's Hospital of Wisconsin patients, families and staff
WHAT: The 60-hour radiothon, now in its twelfth year, is the largest fundraiser for Children's Hospital. Thanks to the generosity of 96.5 FM WKLH listeners, the Dave & Carole Miracle Marathon raised more than $1.3 million for Children's Hospital of Wisconsin in 2008. WKLH's morning team of Dave Luczak and Carole Caine will broadcast live from Children's Hospital. At the hospital, Luczak and Caine connect with patients and families who share their experiences at Children's Hospital. By 5 p.m. Friday, May 22, Luczak and Caine hope to surpass 2008's donation total.
In addition to phone-in donations to (414) 337-WKLH (9554), online donations can be made at www.wklh.com.
WHEN: 5 a.m. Wednesday, May 20, through 5 p.m. Friday, May 22. Patients and staff participating in the marathon will be available for interviews.
