WAUSAU, WI (WSAU) - A central Wisconsin radio station is kicking off their twelfth year of raising money for a good cause. It’s Country Cares for St. Jude’s childrens research hospital.
Joe Cassady says central Wisconsin has been very generous in helping to support St. Jude’s and the patients and families that travel there from our area for care. He says people in our area have been passionate supporters of St. Jude’s as well by contributing 1.1 million dollars over the past 11 years.
The WDEZ staff will be broadcasting from Trig’s in Wausau during the St. Jude’s radiothon, and you’re invited to stop by, say hello, help out, and drop off donations.
Cassady says it now takes 1.4 million dollars a day to operate St. Jude’s Hospital, so everything you do is very important.
Expect to hear patient stories and interviews, and plenty of information about the St. Jude’s programs on 101.9 FM. You can also get more information and make donations at WDEZ.COM.
