DETROIT LAKES (KDLM) - The 8th Annual Lakes Area Cares for St. Jude Kids Radiothon begins today on Leighton Broadcasting stations 102.3 KRCQ, WAVE 104.1 and 1340 KDLM.

From 6am to 6pm Thursday & Friday Leighton Broadcasting personalities will be asking area listeners to make a donation to the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital by calling 1-800-455-9196 or by texting “FIGHT” to 7-8-5-8-3-3.

The mission of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital is to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment. No child is denied treatment based on race, religion or a family's ability to pay.

"We are proud of our community for coming together the last 8 years and raising hundreds of thousands of dollars, but we cannot and will not stop until no child dies of cancer".
