RADIO ONE syndicated shows and inspiration stations raised more than $1 million through the fifth annual RADIO CARES FOR ST. JUDE Kids national event to help ST. JUDE CHILDREN'S RESEARCH HOSPITAL. The all-day radio event on APRIL 5th began at 6a with the YOLANDA ADAMS Morning Show and ended at 11p with the COCO BROTHER Live show and other syndicated inspiration shows and stations in 11 participating markets across the country, all asking listeners to donate to ST. JUDE.
"Our listeners continue to show their support for ST. JUDE in a big way, year after year," said YOLANDA ADAMS. "They really demonstrate through the spirit of giving how their hearts are touched by these beautiful patients and their personal stories."
"It is because of the support of organizations like RADIO ONE, and the NATIONAL PAN-HELLENIC COUNCIL, and people like YOLANDA ADAMS and COCO BROTHER that ST. JUDE continues to treat the world's sickest children with the best care, all while ensuring that no family ever pays ST. JUDE for anything," said ALSAC/ST. JUDE CHILDREN'S RESEARCH HOSPITAL CEO RICHARD SHADYAC JR. "We appreciate their commitment to the ST. JUDE mission of finding cures and saving children as well as the generosity of all the listeners who have joined the fight against childhood cancer and other deadly diseases."
