2018 Radiothon raises $140,000

Thank you to everyone who donated during our 2018 Children's Miracle Network Hospitals® Radiothon!

"We had an incredible event this year and the numbers were amazing. This success would not have been possible without each volunteer, sponsor and family who shared their story. Thank you to those who listened during Radiothon and called in to make a pledge and show their support. We are very grateful for such a supportive and generous community," says Heather Gilles, associate director of development for CMN Hospitals.

All the money pledged stays local to help area children facing medical challenges—like this year's Heroes—no matter where they get their healthcare or the nature of their illness.

If you were unable to pledge during the Radiothon, you can still make a gift at gundersenhealth.org/cmnhospitals.

A special thank you to La Crosse Media Group, all our Heroes, their families, volunteers and sponsors for making Radiothon possible.

Thank you to our sponsors!

Friendly competition nets CMN Hospitals more than $12,000

Gundersen staff went toe-to-toe in a friendly competition to raise money for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals® through Radiothon.

It was Team Inpatient versus Team Outpatient in a competition to see which team could raise the most money. It was Team Inpatient at $7,641, who won bragging rights, besting Team Outpatient with $4,818. But the real winners are area kids and their families who are helped through all your generous donations.

Love + Medicine

Every day, Gundersen Health System staff deliver great medicine plus a little something extra—we call it Love + Medicine.
