  • The Montreal Children’s Hospital Foundation and radio stations CJAD 800, 96 Virgin Radio, CHOM 97 7 and TSN Radio 690, are proud to announce that the 2024 edition of the Caring for Kids Radiothon, aired on June 2, raised an outstanding ­­­­­­$1,300,428 for the Montreal Children’s Hospital’s young patients.

    Live from the Children’s P.K. Subban four-story Atrium, almost forty patients and their families courageously shared how the hospital’s professionals saved their children’s lives.

    Responding to the call of their favourite hosts, thousands of listeners joined the Circle of Hugs with a monthly donation of $20 or more. The final result clearly demonstrates their generosity. In 13 years, more than $19.7 million have been raised for the Children’s thanks to CJAD 800, 96 Virgin Radio, CHOM 97 7 and TSN Radio 690.

    All funds raised go to the Healthy Kids Fund to meet the most urgent needs of the hospital, which include medical and surgical equipment and funding for innovative projects.
