CMN Radiothon launched at Albany Mall

Whether by a phone call or a visit to the Albany Mall, Phoebe Putney Hospital hopes you'll help raise money for Children's Miracle Network. 

Radio station B-100 kicked off a two day radiothon at the Mall Thursday morning.

Volunteers are manning phones from ten to six Thursday and Friday. Organizers say all the money raised stays right here in south Georgia to help sick children.

"There's 32 babies currently in the neo-natal intensive care unit at Phoebe," said Amanda Smith of Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital. "One has been there for over three months, and you can imagine how those parents feel having their baby in there for that long. And there's actually a baby there right now weighing one pound and thirteen ounces, which is absolutely incredible. And that baby's in equipment that has been purchased with Children's Miracle Network funds."

Albany Panthers players will answer phones tomorrow. I-HOP is also throwing a breakfast party from 6:00 to 10:00 am.

Panthers will sign autographs between 9:00 and 10:00 at I-HOP tomorrow. To see how you can donate... log onto our website at walb.com.
