"While Children's Hospital is located in Wauwatosa, really the reach is so much further than Wauwatosa it's throughout the entire state of Wisconsin. We have 40 locations; we have primary care clinics, we have a hospital in Fox Valley. We have a lot of patients that come here that are all throughout the nation," said a spokesperson for Children's Hospital.

FOX6's Jessob Reisbeck, Nicole Koglin and Angelica Duria volunteered at the event Thursday morning. The radiothon continues Friday, May 25 from 6 a.m. to 5 p.m.
