Brain and Courtlin are live from the brand new University of Iowa Stead Family Children's Hospital on the first day of the 21st annual Children's Miracle Network Radiothon.

All day on 98.1 KHAK, we've been sharing stories of children who have received treatment at the hospital. You can't help but be touched when you hear what these kids and their familes have gone through, or are currently going through.

Please consider donating whatever you can afford by calling 800-456-2772 or clicking the button below to donate online. The money stays local to help kids right here in our hometowns by funding research, programs, and equipment that's not covered by insurance.

Since things can get pretty tough around the hospital, we decided to have some fun by taking goofy pictures in our K-Hawk photo booth. Check out the silly photo's of the local children you're helping in our photo gallery. And don't forget to please donate!
