Distinctly Downtown: Akron Children’s Hospital radiothon

Calling all Change Bandits – a message from Akron Children’s Hospital

The 15th annual “Have a Heart, Do Your Part” Radiothon presented by 98.1 WKDD will be held Feb. 13-15, 2014. For the past 14 years, Radiothon has been an amazing success, touching the hearts of tens of thousands of listeners throughout northeast Ohio and raising nearly $8.3 million to benefit the sick and injured children at Akron Children’s Hospital. $2.2 million has been raised throughout the past 14 years by amazing Change Bandits. That’s a lot of loose change! 

Change Bandits “rob” their friends, family and co-workers of spare change, with all proceeds benefiting the kids in care of Akron Children’s Hospital. In 2013, Change Bandits raised more than $152,000 in change – contributing to the grand total of $664,000.

This is your opportunity to join the Change Bandit campaign for the 2014 “Have a Heart, Do Your Part” Radiothon. The official Change Bandit promotion started on 98.1 WKDD in early January, but you can get a head start on your campaign right now.
