Rainbow Radiothon: Giving Patients a Better Future

For 14 years, the Greater Cleveland community has donated generously to help the kids at UH Rainbow Babies & Children’s through our Rainbow Radiothon. The signature event brings to listeners remarkable stories of love, hope and compassion featuring Rainbow’s young patients and the dedicated staff who care for them.

We are pleased to continue the annual tradition through two exciting broadcasts: On Friday, Dec. 2, 2016, morning show hosts Jen and Tim of Star 102 return to once again share inspiring stories of hope and healing during a 13-hour broadcast, live from Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital.

And on Nov. 10-11, 2016, our friends at La Mega 87.7 return to rock the microphones in support of the kids and families at Rainbow for the third-annual Hispanic Radiothon.

Tune in to both Star 102 and La Mega 87.7 to hear what makes Rainbow such a special place for patients, families, doctors and nurses and find out how you can help make miracles happen at Rainbow!

Since its inception in 2003, Rainbow Radiothon has inspired nearly $4 million in giving. All proceeds stay in Northeast Ohio and benefit programs and services provided by Rainbow Babies & Children’s – programs not traditionally covered by medical insurance, such as the in-hospital accredited tutor program and art and music therapy. Rainbow Radiothon also helps to fund innovative research, recruitment and retention of leading physicians and fellows.
