The 21st CMN Radiothon is underway! And it's the first year in the new children's hospital!

Every year, we get to participate in one of the most important things we’ll do all year — our annual radiothon to benefit the Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) and the University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital in Iowa City. And every year, we ask you to call in your donations to help families in Eastern Iowa. There are children and teens who have various diseases, and babies just weeks, days, sometimes even hours old, all fighting for their lives. These are families from your town — your neighborhood.

Money raised in prior years has helped kids and their families by building them a new children’s hospital where they can continue to receive an above and beyond standard of care. The K-Hawk crew will be posted up in the kids theater by the main entrance of the new University of Iowa Stead Family Children's Hospital. Stop by and see us, and as we bring you their stories this week, please donate whatever you can. Click the button below if you’d like to donate online or call the donation line at 800-456-2772. THANK YOU for supporting CMN.
