Mix 106.5 held their 34th annual Radiothon on Feb. 23-24 to help children receiving treatment at the Johns Hopkins Children's Center - a nationally ranked, pediatric acute care children's hospital located in Baltimore, Maryland.

Broadcasting from the hospital, DJ's shared stories of hope and inspiration from families and kids treated at JHCC.

This year's Radiothon raised $1,432,212.34, breaking the previous record of $1,423,688.29 set in 2020.

"Radiothon is the largest fundraising event of the year, and it is such a huge part of who we are and what we do at Johns Hopkins Children’s Center," said Margaret Moon, M.D., M.P.H., Co-Director and Pediatrician-in-Chief, Johns Hopkins Children’s Center. "We are so grateful for each and every donor, as well as Mix 106.5, our staff and the volunteers who make this special two-day event possible every year."

Since its inception in 1990, the Radiothon has raised nearly $27 million for JHCC.
