The Miracle Marathon is a two-day, live radiothon hosted by WKLH's Dave and Carole. The Miracle Marathon has become one of Milwaukee's annual giving traditions, raising critical funds to support the programs and services at Children's Hospital of Wisconsin.
Generous 96.5 WKLH listeners and donors throughout our community raised $1.42 million to support Children's!
Once again, in 2014, Dave & Carole and their entire team made this 36-hour radiothon Children's Hospital of Wisconsin's highest grossing fundraiser. The Dave & Carole Miracle Marathon is the largest fundraiser of its kind per capita in all of North America. Broadcast the Thursday and Friday before Memorial Day, the radiothon showcases the many patient, families, physicians and staff who contribute to our story, and make Children’s the number four-ranked pediatric hospital in the nation. Stay tuned for next year's radiothon, scheduled to broadcast May 21-22, 2015.
