For Kelly McElree, the Family First Radiothon is always about family.
“We’re grateful for the support we do get. Every dollar counts. Oftentimes people share the reasons why they make those donations. They’re very personal donations,” said McElree, executive director of the Moose Jaw Health Foundation (MJHF).
“They’ve had that one special nurse that gave them attention to help them through a very difficult time in their life or they’re very grateful for the facilities in physio or kidney dialysis and people really want to pay tribute to that and to those people who have helped them through very, very difficult times.
“Part of the magic of the radiothon is people get to hear those stories.”
Running 36 hours from 6 a.m., on Thursday to 6 p.m., on Friday, the 10th annual CHAB Family First Radiothon will be held at a new location this year.
