PHOENIX — Phoenix Children’s treated more than 155,000 patients last year. It costs nearly $2.7 million per day to operate the hospital.

Phoenix Children’s needs your help to continue its lifesaving work.

This week, the 14th annual Phoenix Children’s Give-A-Thon, presented by Valley Hyundai Dealers and Ak-Chin Indian Community, takes place on KTAR News 92.3 FM and 98.7 FM Arizona’s Sports Station.

The event will air at various times on all shows throughout the week. On KTAR News 92.3 FM, it will air daily between 5 a.m. and 7 p.m. and between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. on 98.7 FM Arizona’s Sports Station.

Every show will dedicate one segment per hour to the hospital and its services.

“We are incredibly grateful for our partnership with KTAR & Arizona Sports,” Steve Schnall, senior vice president and chief development officer at Phoenix Children’s Hospital Foundation, said.

“These funds go a long way in helping the patients who need it most at Phoenix Children’s. Every donation counts and gets us closer to our goal.”

The hospital is looking for Champions of Hope to pledge $20 per month.

Those who do will have a teddy bear delivered to a patient in their name on the TRANE Teddy Bear Express. They will also receive a choice of a Wildlife World Zoo kids pass or a Cobblestone Auto Spa car wash.

Call the Desert Financial Credit Union Phone Bank at 602-933-4567, text “GIVE” to 411923 or 620620, or visit here to donate and receive more details.

As the the largest radio hospital fundraiser in the country, the fundraiser last year brought in $1.8 million in donations. Since 2009, it has raised more than $18.3 million.

With hundreds of thousands of patients and visits, PCH continues to need help, particularly as COVID-19 continues to create uncertainty and extra expenses in the health care system.

Be a Champion of Hope this week and help save lives.

We want to hear from you.
