Thank you to our listeners, sponsors, and donors for helping us raise $31,021 for the kids of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital during our annual 102.5 The Fox Cares for St. Jude Kids Radiothon. Thanks to you, St. Jude is able to continue to lead the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life threatening diseases. Patients at St. Jude never receive a bill for treatment, travel or housing because all a family should worry about is helping their child live. This is only made possible thanks to all our listeners that called in and became a Partner in Hope. Thank you for helping make a difference!

Country Cares for St. Jude Kids, one of the most successful radio fundraising events in America, celebrates 25 years of helping St. Jude find cures and save children. Since the program began in 1989, more than 200 radio stations across the country have raised more than $500 million in pledges for the children of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®.
Many country artists have given their names and time to Country Cares through recorded appeals, visits to the children at the hospital and much more. These stars include Randy Owen, John Rich, Ronnie Dunn, Kix Brooks, Brad Paisley, Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, Lonestar, Taylor Swift, Justin Moore, Reba McEntire, Keith Urban, Jake Owen, Brantley Gilbert and more.
All segments of the country music industry – artists, record label representatives, artist managers, publishers, songwriters and radio station staff – participate in the Country Cares program.
Randy Owen, lead singer of the group ALABAMA, helped launch the Country Cares for St. Jude Kids program after meeting with hospital founder Danny Thomas. Thomas’ daughter, Terre, carries on her father’s Country Cares legacy by assisting with radiothons throughout the year, as well as assisting with the program’s annual training seminar.
During the Radiothon, highlights include St. Jude patient stories, country celebrity vignettes, local patient appearances and exciting radio station promotions.
Make sure to tune in Thursday, February 2nd and Friday. February 3rd and take a listen to the many stories we will share and how you can help make a difference for the children of St. Jude Research Hospital.
