GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — An annual fundraiser to help sick did broke its own record recently.
The 20th annual Helen DeVos Children's Hospital Foundation and iHeart Media Radiothon brought in more than $400,000. And they did in just two days.
All the money stays local, supporting more than 20 different programs at the children's hospital. Just some include the center for child protection, the Pediatric Oncology Resource Team, the Secchia Care Partners and more.
And they're not slowing down. "The moment the event concludes, we begin planning the next year," said Tim Feagan, iHeart Media and Helen DeVos Children's Hospital Foundation Board Vice Chair.
