2017 Radiothon raises $115,000

Thank you to everyone who made a donation during our 2017 Children's Miracle Network Hospitals® Radiothon. During the three-day event people called in and pledged $115,000, with more money coming in.

"We had an incredible event this year and the numbers were amazing," says Heather Gilles, associate director of development for CMN Hospitals. "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."

All the money you 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.

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 $5,485, who won bragging rights and a trophy, besting Team Outpatient with $2,626. But the real winners are area kids and their families who are helped through all your generous donations.

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