The most important two days of radio we do every year are almost here and it's even more special this year. The KHAK Radiothon for Children's Miracle Network is celebrating 25 years of making a difference in the lives of Iowa kids.

At the end of each summer, 98.1 KHAK broadcasts live from Iowa City for our annual KHAK radiothon for Children's Miracle Network. During the two-day event, which began back in the 1990s, you'll hear stories from local families and be able to donate to help impact even more families in the area. Over the past 24 years, you have donated more than $3.25 million to CMN and local families in Iowa.

This year's event will take place this Thursday and Friday (August 18-19) and be hosted by Brain & Courtlin. They'll interview kids and their families that have been treated at the University of Iowa Stead Family Children's Hospital. You'll hear stories that will make you smile, some that will make you cry, and they'll all touch your heart. You'll not only hear the families' amazing stories, but you'll also learn about the top care provided by the hospital. During the Radiothon, you'll be able to call in or go online to donate and help save children's lives. You can already donate online at the link below:
