Like so many of our favorite events, the 2020 KS95 for Kids Radiothon will look a little bit different this year – but the switch to a fully-virtual Radiothon means that there are even more ways to make a difference for kids!
The KS95 for Kids Radiothon is an annual on-air fundraiser benefiting two local charities, Gillette Children’s Specialty Healthcare and Children’s Cancer Research Fund. In the past, KS95 has broadcast live from the Mall of America, but this year’s event moves online to Facebook so you can join in on the fun from anywhere.
KS95 host, Dez, interviews Bentley Erickson and his mother, Kris. Both served as Radiothon Ambassadors during the 2019 event.
Throughout the day on Friday, Dec. 11, you can go online or tune in to KS95 FM to find inspiring stories from the patients served by Gillette and Children’s Cancer Research Fund. You’ll learn more about their journeys and how your support of these two organizations will touch the lives of children and families in your community. Plus, there are incentives to motivate you to donate, so you not only get the benefit of making a difference – you may win some fun prizes, too!
There are so many ways to show your support during the event:
- Donate by texting KS95KIDS to 51555, calling 1-877-253-5437, or going online to ks95forkids.com
- Shop the KS95 for Kids Online Boutique
- Create your own online giving page where you can encourage friends and family to show their support
Over the past 22 years, the KS95 for Kids Radiothon has raised over $16 million and touched the lives of countless children and families. We’re so thankful for all of the Gillette families who have captured listener’s hearts and inspired generosity, including this year’s Radiothon Ambassadors: Trevor, Owen, MaKiah, Kyra, Sam and Wes!
