Radiothon helps raise money for Ronald McDonald House

While the doctors at St. Jude work to heal sick children, the Ronald McDonald House offers a place for those families to stay.

Now, one Mid-South radio station is asking for help to make their stay easier.

The Rock 103 Morning Crew is pulling a morning, afternoon, overnight shift for 28-straight hours.

They are raising money for the Ronald McDonald House, helping 51 families receive treatment at St.Jude.

They started broadcasting at 6 o'clock Thursday morning and they will wrap up at 10 o'clock Friday morning

"Were very tired. We've been up all day and we'll be up all night. We're going to have a few sleeping bags around here.  It's a fun two days," Sara Whitaker of the Ronald McDonald House said.

Whitaker said they have raised more than $330,000 last year for the Ronald McDonald House.

One year, they hit half a million dollars.

And for the first time you can watch the crew live during the Radiothon on their website.

They are also holding a silent auction on-line.

If you want to donate by phone, call 1-800-230-KIDS.
