The 2015 St. Jude Country Cares Radiothon was a big year for the Northland and for the children of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

Going into the 17th annual radiothon we were hoping that this would be the year that the Northland would raise a $1,000,000 for St. Jude, and not only did you do it, you did it in record breaking fashion.

This year, with the incredible generosity of area businesses, volunteers and you, a record $88,066 was raised, adding that to the previous 16 years, it brings the total to $1,023,851.

This money goes directly to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital to help them fight childhood cancer. And even though the radiothon is done for another year, you can still become a Partner in Hope for just $20 a month, click here.
