HURLEY said, "We fill 12 hours of programming each day with amazing stories of hope and strength. There are a lot of people who these hospitals have helped, and we’re here to remind our listeners that they’ll be here in their moment of need too. Every year, I am blown away by the resilience and love that come from our friends and neighbors."
