About Star 102.1 Radiothon
Every year, the Star 102.1 Radiothon for Children's Hospital gives people in East Tennessee an opportunity to help children they know and love - children who live in their neighborhoods, attend local schools and participate in the same activities as their own children and grandchildren. The Radiothon offers an opportunity for people in the community to hear real-life stories from children who have been patients and will benefit from their donations. Star 102.1 listeners and those visiting the live event will learn how their donations provide funding for much needed specialized pediatric medical equipment to meet the health care needs of the tens of thousands of area children served by Children's Hospital every year.
Use of Funds
Children's Hospital is here to help children throughout the region, and every child is helped regardless of their family's ability to pay. All funds raised from the Star 102.1 Radiothon will be used in ways that directly affect the children served by Children's Hospital through programs including Home Health Care.
