Kicker 102.5 is proud to present the 2017 Country Cares for St. Jude Kids Radiothon Thursday and Friday, Feb. 16-17.  These are the two most important days out of the year for us where you can make a difference in helping cure a child with cancer and other catastrophic diseases.

Our entire staff supports this great cause and looks forward in helping the kids fight cancer at St. Jude. We all work hard in hopes of raising the needed funds it takes to keep St. Jude Children's Research Hospital operating. It's crucial that making a donation during our Radiothon allows some of the top doctors and medical professionals in the world to continue finding ways to beat childhood cancer. The medicines they develop and the protocols they discover are shared with doctors and hospitals all over the world. St. Jude is working to drive the overall survival rate for childhood cancer to 90 percent. St. Jude won't stop until no child dies from cancer.

As always, we have some great prizes up for grabs for everyone who becomes a Partner in Hope by calling 1-800-749-4498. By pledging just $20 a month on your debit or credit card you'll receive  a really cool St. Jude T-Shirt and be in the drawings for the grand prize and other great prizes listed below.

Something new this year, you can text the word FIGHT to 7-8-5-8-3-3 and click the link to donate. By texting, you'll receive reminders from St. Jude to complete your donation. And as always, you can donate online today or tomorrow or year round!
