LETHBRIDGE, AB. – It’s that time of year again.

The local Care From the Heart Radio-a-thon is taking place this week to raise money for the Chinook Regional Hospital Foundation.

The 11th annual event involves all six Lethbridge radio stations, including 94.1  CJOC and 98.1 2Day FM.

The event runs Thursday, February 11th between 7:00 am and 6:00 pm.

Over the course of the day Thursday, you’ll hear interviews with folks from the CRH Foundation, health care workers, and others.

All the money raised from the radio-a-thon stays right here in Lethbridge and is used to buy much-needed equipment and fund special projects for the hospital.

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, donations this year are only being accepted over the phone 403-388-6001 or easily on the CRH Foundation website by clicking this link: Care From the Heart 2021

This a major fundrasier for the foundation, having brought in over $2.3 million since 2010. Last year, the radio-a-thon raised more than $325,000, which was a record one year amount.
