Gillette Family Interviews Kick Off 2011 Radiothon Prep

Posted On: 07/11/2011

The KS95 for Kids Radiothon is among our favorite annual fundraisers. And this year, our friends at KS95 — morning show talent Melissa, Ryan, and Trey — helped us get the 2011 Radiothon off to a fantastic start. They invited two Gillette patients, Elijah and Braeden, to the KS95 studio along with their families and siblings, to record interviews that will be aired throughout the Radiothon.

This year’s event will again be held during the holiday season, from December 9-10, at Mall of America. During that time, you can tune into KS95 (94.5 FM) to hear stories of Gillette kids — kids who have disabilities, or are recovering from traumatic injuries — and kids fighting cancer who’ve been helped by Children’s Cancer Research Fund (CCRF). As always, Gillette and CCRF split the proceeds.

We’ll share regular updates in the months leading up to December via Facebook and Twitter. For now, here are some photos of today’s fun.
