The 50 radio stations involved in the RADIOTHON across Canada have been working with their partner hospitals or health care facility for months to coordinate and organize the logistics for the day. A pre-fundraising initiative called change bandits; change crusaders or banditos will raise awareness for the RADIOTHON and begin the process of raising money. In many markets, the radio stations work with Children’s Miracle Network, an international non-profit organization dedicated to saving and improving the lives of children by raising funds for children’s hospitals and health foundations.  See the Press Release.
