MONTGOMERY (Mar. 6, 2012) – MIX 103 FM will host the Music and Miracles Radiothon on Thursday, Mar. 15 and Friday, Mar. 16, 6 a.m. till 6 p.m., to benefit Children’s of Alabama. Morning DJs Leanne and J.T. will broadcast live from the Center Court at the Eastdale Mall.
Over the course of the two-day event, listeners will hear and share heart-warming stories of children who have been forever affected by Children’s. From the views of the children, doctors, nurses and families, these stories of courage and heart highlight the dedication of Children’s to caring youngsters from across the state and southeast.
The money raised from the Radiothon will help fund the healthcare provided to every child in need. In the past year, Children’s has facilitated more than 9,700 patient visits from Autauga, Elmore and Montgomery counties to treat the region’s ill and injured children.
Last year, the annual Music and Miracles Radiothon raised approximately $46,000 from across Alabama.

Children’s of Alabama has provided specialized medical care for ill and injured children across the state and throughout the southeastern U.S. since 1911. It is the only hospital in Alabama dedicated solely to the care and treatment of children. Ten of its divisions – pulmonology, neurology and neurosurgery, orthopedics, urology, neonatology, cancer, cardiology, gastroenterology, endocrinology and nephrology—were recently ranked among the best children’s hospital programs in the nation by US News & World Report. Children’s is recognized by the American Nurses Credentialing Center as a Magnet-designated hospital for excellence in nursing care. It is a private, not-for-profit hospital that serves as the primary site of the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) pediatric medicine, surgery, research and residency programs. A 750,000-square-feet expansion is currently under construction and will open in June. Last year, patients made more than 634,000 outpatient and nearly 14,000 inpatient visits to Children’s.
