No Balloons, No Problem!
The "No Balloons, No Problem," mantra was shouted, cheered, and sung by Costco employees during their CMN fundraising campaign in September. They understood that now, more than ever, kids at KU Pediatrics can't wait for life saving treatments or critical care. So, despite the challenges that kept them from making a real connection with their members such as face coverings, register plexiglass, and the removal of miracle balloons, they stayed determined.
As a result of their resolve to continue to ask and the generosity of Costco members, our five local warehouses did an amazing job with their fundraising. Their campaign was a success and truly lived up to their "No Balloons, No Problem" theme!

Join us for the Miracle Day of Hope this December
Cumulus Media will celebrate the 2020 Miracle Day of Hope Radiothon to benefit KU Pediatrics onThursday, December 3rd. This year, listeners are in for a very special treat as we dedicate each hour of the 12-hour radiothon to a specific area of KU Medical Center Pediatrics and the University of Kansas Health System. We will illustrate what hope looks like through services CMN provides, the healing it gives to local kids who dream to be more and why support is needed from the KC community to ensure important healthcare initiatives continue to thrive.
Although Cumulus talent will be broadcasting the radiothon from their homes this year, we will all be united in making sure that hope and maybe even a little holiday magic will be given to kids in Kansas City, at a time when they and maybe each of us, need it the most.
Mark your calendars and tune in on December 3rd to your favorite Cumulus station: 101. The Fox, 94.9 KCMO, 95.7 The Vibe, Magic 107.3, KCMO Talk Radio at 103.7 FM and 710 AM, X105.1 or 102.5 Jack FM and join us for the 2020 Miracle Day of Hope!
