It was another successful edition of the Caring for Kids radiothon - thanks in large part to donations from CJAD 800 listeners.

" One million, three hundred and fifty eight thousand dollars raised. Thank you to each and every one of you who took the time to make a donation today.  Heartfelt thanks from all of us here at the Montreal Children's Hospital.  Thank you all so much, " said Rand as the radiothon wrapped up.

The radiothon was broadcast live Wednesday on CJAD 800, 95.9 Virgin Radio, TSN 690 and CHOM 97.7.

Families shared touching and incredible personal stories about how their lives have been impacted by the staff and the care they've received at the hospital.

The event has raised over 23 million dollars since 2004 to help support the hospital.
