2013 St Jude Radiothon Wrapup
People ask me sometimes, what’s it’s like to take part in the St Jude Radiothon. Well, different words come to mind – inspiring, exhausting, difficult, rewarding and overwhelming just to name a few. We spend weeks planning the Radiothon each year, and then all of a sudden it’s over. Each year we are blown away with the total. This year, over $117,000 was sent from Southwest Montana to the kids fighting for their lives at St Jude.
Thank you doesn’t seem like an adequate statement. To say that our listeners are generous and thoughtful doesn’t seem adequate. But it’s all we can come up with.
For many of us here on MY 103.5 and XL Country, these are our favorite two days of the year. It reminds us why we get up at 4:30 in the morning each day to do this thing called radio. It reminds us what we are here to do.
So for the lack of better words, from the bottom of our hearts – THANK YOU. Thank you for caring, thank you for letting us pour our hearts out for a cause that we believe in, thank you for responding, thank you for reminding us why we live in the best place in the world.
