PHOENIX – As they do every year, KTAR News 92.3 FM and 98.7 FM Arizona’s Sports Station are teaming up this week to raise money for Phoenix Children’s Hospital.

On Wednesday and Thursday, the Phoenix sister stations will be dedicating broadcast time to the Give-A-Thon, which raises money for this amazing facility.

The stations have raised more than $10 million for Phoenix Children’s Hospital in nine years of the event.

More than 60 of of the hospital’s programs are funded either entirely or in part through philanthropic efforts like the Give-A-Thon.

Here is a behind-the-scenes look at five programs that help make the facility such an important part of the community:


1 Darn Cool School

The 1 Darn Cool School helps patients stay connected with their education during their hospital stay.


Child Life Zone

The Child Life Zone is a therapeutic space where patients can have fun, with games, crafts, music, movies and other activities.


Braeden’s Playground

Braeden’s Playground is an outdoor space where patients and their families can have fun together.


Emily Center Family Health Library

The Emily Center Family Health Library provides reliable medical information for patients as well as the community, for no charge.


Emergency Department

The hospital’s expanded emergency department, which opened a year ago, provides state-of-the-art care and service up to 100,000 patients annually.
