Carolinas Credit Unions sponsor 2020 Duke Children’s Radiothon, help spread the message that “Kids Can’t Wait”

GREENSBORO, NC (December 18, 2020) — Even during a global pandemic, the needs of sick and injured children at Duke Children’s can’t wait. That was the message this year at the 2020 Duke Children’s Radiothon on December 15 and 16, of which Carolinas Credit Unions was a sponsor and major supporter.

About the Radiothon

The radiothon is the premier fundraiser for Duke Children’s health network, one of the 170 Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) Hospitals throughout the country. Over the course of two days, the MIX 101.5 crew shared the remarkable stories of past and present patients while encouraging listeners to pledge donations for the kids who can’t wait. All the money raised will help fund patient care through the Duke Children’s medical and surgical programs.

Typically, the event is held at the Duke Children’s Hospital and credit union staff volunteer for shifts on the phone bank. However, due to social distancing and pandemic guidelines, this year’s radiothon was broadcast directly from the MIX 101.5 studio with no in-person volunteer positions.

  • Acclaim Federal Credit Union

This year’s event raised$397,227.42.Over the past 26 years, the radiothon has raised more than$18 million for Duke Children’s.

“The COVID-19 pandemic has overshadowed almost everything that happened this year, but the truth is that the kids at Duke Children’s who suffer from life-threatening illnesses and injuries still need specialized care, and that’s why our support for the 2020 radiothon was more important than ever,” said Erin Doan, administration and community relations director for Vizo Financial. “It was an incredibly powerful message to see brought to life through the patients’ stories, as well as the dedication and commitment of those who pledged donations. Carolinas Credit Unions were proud to be part of such an event and we look forward to participating in next year’s radiothon.”
