The 2020 Hasbro Children's Hospital Radiothon

‘In a year like no other,
we had a Radiothon like no other’

Radiothon 2020 Total

The 16th annual Hasbro Children’s Hospital Radiothon took place Thursday, September 17, and the event was another rousing success! Despite having to be reconfigured to account for COVID-19 restrictions and precautions—i.e. it was not an in-person program as was the case in all previous years—Radiothon still raised $422,321 for the hospital, which will be used to advance their world-class patient care, lifesaving programs, and research efforts.

“In a year like no other, we had a Radiothon like no other,” said Timothy J. Babineau, MD, President and CEO of Lifespan. “But in spite of the obstacles and barriers brought about by the pandemic, people still came together—from a safe distance, of course—to show their unwavering support for Hasbro Children’s and to make a difference in the lives of the children and families we care for. We could not be more grateful to our community for its generosity.”

During the 12-hour event—which was broadcasted simultaneously on Cumulus Providence stations 92 PRO-FM, 630 WPRO, Lite Rock 105, and Hot 106—Hasbro Children’s patients, families and staff took to the airwaves to share their inspiring stories of hope and healing.

As listeners across Rhode Island and nearby Connecticut and Massachusetts were introduced to patients and their journeys with, among other things, rare and fast-moving cancers, traumatic brain injuries, and life-threatening heart conditions, volunteers manned a social distancing phone bank on the Hasbro Children’s campus, answering calls to accept donations throughout the day.

Proceeds from Radiothon support the hospital’s ability to provide our region’s children and their families the best care possible. These funds have helped to purchase medical equipment and support the healing arts and child life programs.

Since its inception, the Radiothon has raised more than $8.8 million for Hasbro Children’s Hospital.
