Sponsorship opportunities and associated benefits available:
During our Miracle Marathon, the WKLH Morning Crew will announce sponsored Miracle Moment hours to draw attention to the many programs and services offered at Children's. These special hours of airplay also serve as a vehicle to aggressively highlight sponsorship businesses that proactively support Children's Hospital.
Sponsor a Miracle Moment and your company will receive significant visibility during each sponsored hour of the Miracle Marathon. This includes: on-air promotion during peak drive times, significant web promotion and employee outreach opportunities.

Are you interested in sponsoring our Miracle Match opportunity? A Miracle Match doubles the impact of our community's generosity. Your company's name will be promoted as you match each donor's dollar, creating double the benefit for kids.
What is a Power Burst? How can you sponsor one? Power Bursts provide a significant boost to the number of calls and donations we receive during the Dave & Carole Miracle Marathon, which ultimately means more dollars raised. By sponsoring a Power Burst, your company provides matching opportunities to donors during a specified time period. Our sponsors receive significant on-air promotion, web promotion and employee outreach opportunities.
