CKNX Health Care Heroes Radiothon: A Brief History
Each fall, CKNX AM920 and local hospital foundations in southwestern Ontario team up to host a unique all-day fundraiser. Since its inception in 2002, the CKNX Health Care Heroes Radiothon has raised more than $13.8 million in support of local hospitals, and has helped to fund the essential equipment necessary to provide excellence in local health care.
The Mount Forest Louise Marshall Hospital Foundation is proud to have been a part of this remarkable fundraising initiative since the 1st Annual CKNX Health Care Heroes Radiothon took to the air in 2002. Over the past 21 years, our community here in Mount Forest and the surrounding area has, time and again, demonstrated their exceptional giving spirit, and together we have raised more than $2,258,504 in support of Louise Marshall Hospital through this annual campaign. This is only made possible through the extraordinary generosity of local residents, businesses and service organizations, and we could not be more grateful for your support. THANK YOU!
