It's one of the biggest fundraisers each year for the St. Joseph's Hospital Foundation. And it's less than 24 hours away.

The 5th Annual Radiothon For Life presented by CJ1150, Sun102, Rock106 and DiscoverEstevan has returned for another year in hopes to raise tens of thousands of dollars supporting health care across southeast Saskatchewan.

For 12 consecutive hours, CJ1150 and Sun102 will broadcast live from 6am - 6pm inside St. Joseph's Hospital. While the call is put out to the community to lend their support, hundreds of volunteers, staff members, patients, students and the entire community will be on hand for the event.

There will be live interviews all day long with people telling their story on how the St. Joseph's Hospital impacted their life, highlighted by the face of this year's Radiothon: Carol Cundall.

That's just one of the amazing stories that the southeast will hear during the 5th Annual Radiothon For Life on Thursday.

Donate in person, or by calling into the pledge line, anytime between 6am - 6pm.
