2014 We Believe Radiothon

Deejays from The Radio People’s ten stations across central Mississippi gave credence to the theme “We believe…” during the 13th Annual Mississippi Miracles Radiothon in March. And their belief paid off when the 39-hour broadcast raised a record $416,209. The money funds equipment, research and programs that ensure Batson Children’s Hospital will be able to provide the most advanced level of care to all of Mississippi’s children.
