About The Radiothon To End Child Abuse
For nearly two decades, communities in Northern Minnesota have been coming together for 24-hours the first Thursday and Friday in December to prevent child abuse. Sponsored by the Radio stations of Omni Broadcasting in Bemidji, Alexandria, Brainerd, and Wadena, the Radiothon To End Child Abuse is a community-wide event. For 24 hours, the radio stations turn their programming over to raising awareness and funds for efforts that strengthen families and prevent child abuse and neglect. The broadcast is live from grocery stores and malls. Community professionals speak on-air about local efforts to prevent abuse and share ideas of what each of us can do to support families. Local performers, from students to professionals, sing and dance as part of the festivities. Businesses and individuals make on-air challenges to one another, each giving generously to support child abuse and neglect prevention efforts. The community outpouring is an annual inspiration and testament to the truth that it takes all of us to support and strengthen families.
