Renown Children’s Hospital treats about 30,000 children each year and the support of the community is crucial. The fourth annual 36 Hours for Kids Radiothon, hosted by Alice 96.5 and Reno Media Group, is February 23-24. All money raised during the Radiothon stays in the community to help fund state-of-the-art equipment and provide support for services and education programs at Renown Children's Hospital, the only northern Nevada Children’s Miracle Network Hospital.
Media is invited behind-the-scenes to see the lifesaving equipment purchased with funds from last year’s Radiothon and get an understanding of what the Children’s Hospital needs this year.

As the region’s only Children’s Miracle Network Hospital, we want to ensure children of all ages get quality healthcare close to home. This is made possible through support from our community.
The 36 Hours for Kids Radiothon, hosted by Alice 96.5 and Reno Media Group from February 23 at 6 a.m. to February 24 at 6 p.m., raises funds for Renown Children’s Hospital. Bill, Connie and RJ from Alice 96.5 will broadcast live from Fianna’s Overlook in Renown Regional Medical Center, where there will be stories and testimonials shared about the miracles that happen at Renown Children’s Hospital every day.
