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.
