Miracle Marathon raises more than $1.3M for Children's Hospital of Wisconsin

MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- The 18th annual Dave & Carole Miracle Marathon for Children’s Hospital raised more than $1.3 million. It's all thanks to the generous support of Milwaukee’s Hometown Rock 96.5 WKLH listeners and donors throughout Southeast Wisconsin.

WKLH broadcast the 36-hour radiothon live from Children’s Hospital May 21-22. The radiothon is Children’s Hospital’s highest grossing fundraiser and has raised more than $22 million since its inception in 1998.

Funds raised through Miracle Marathon support vital Children’s Hospital resources and services. Throughout the two-day radiothon, WKLH’s Dave Luczak and Carole Caine connected with patient families, hospital physicians, leaders and staff members to bring to light many of Children’s Hospital’s programs and services that impact the health of thousands of children in our community each year.

Donations can still be made online at chw.org.
