The WOLF gives back to all of Central New York
The WOLF is Central New York’s home for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital
Each year The WOLF dedicates it airwaves to raising money for St. Jude. Many Central New York families benefit from St. Jude CHildren’s Research Hospital. In our very first Radiothon in February of 2014 The Wolf Raised nearly $21,000.00. This doesn’t include the many ongoing efforts all year round.
The Radiothon is now a yearly event on The WOLF!
- Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing and food – because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
- Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20 percent to more than 80 percent since it opened in 1962.
- St. Jude is working to drive the overall survival rate for childhood cancer to 90 percent in the next decade. We won’t stop until no child dies from cancer.
- St. Jude freely shares the breakthroughs we make, and every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands more children.
- Because the majority of St. Jude funding comes from individual contributors, St. Jude has the freedom to focus on what matters most – saving kids regardless of their financial situation.
- St. Jude was founded by the late entertainer Danny Thomas, who believed that “No child should die in the dawn of life.”
