FARGO, N.D., Jan. 27, 2021 - Midwest Radio Fargo Moorhead stations Froggy 99.9 (99.9 FM), Y94 (93.7 FM) and KFGO-AM (790 AM/94.1 FM) are joining forces Jan. 28 and 29 to raise money during the 21st Annual Cares for Kids Radiothon presented by Corwin Automotive Group benefiting Sanford Children's Hospital in Fargo. Last year, the radiothon raised over $150,000.

Money raised during the radiothon is used to support special programs, purchase high-tech medical equipment and fund research and education for Sanford Children's Hospital, the only Children's Miracle Network hospital in North Dakota. 100% of funds raised stay local to help children from throughout North Dakota and northwest Minnesota who receive care at Sanford Children's.

'You never know when your family or someone you know may need the care of Sanford Children's Hospital, so we encourage everyone to be a part of the story of helping local children,' said Hillery Mork, Children's Miracle Network development manager for the Sanford Health Foundation. 'Every dollar goes to help children who are dealing with serious illness or injury.'

On-air personalities will broadcast live 5 a.m. to 6 p.m. both days from the studios of Midwest Radio Fargo Moorhead. Patients and families will share personal stories about how Sanford Children's Hospital has made a difference in their lives.

To donate, call 701-478-KIDS (5437) or 877-478-KIDS (5437), or donate online at sanfordhealthfoundation.org/caresforkids. You can also donate via curbside drop off at the Midwest Radio Fargo Moorhead studios, 1020 S. 25th St., Fargo.

Follow along online using hashtag #CFK21 during the radiothon and visit Children's Miracle Network Fargo's Facebook page for even more uplifting stories of the kids at Sanford Children's.
