Maraton de Milagros
First Hispanic Radiothon Raises $160,000 for Dell Children's
Austin, Texas- February 2010- A grateful community joined hands to raise $160,000 for Dell Children's at "Maraton de Milagros," Central Texas' first Hispanic radiothon to support children's heathcare. Presented by Border Media, the company that operated Austin's Spanish language radio stations La Ley 98.9 and 104.9, Digital 92.5, and sponsored by Cricket, the event educated Austin's Hispanic community about children's health and wellness.
This true marathon of miracles was broadcast live from Dell Children's, and donations were made by phone, at various Cricket locations, and at the medical center. A generous community of Hispanic leaders, corporations, small businesses, families and civic groups were eager to sponsor, donate and volunteer to make the event a great success.
Last year, 47 percent of Dell Children's patients were Hispanic.
