Volunteers are answering phones and taking pledges around the clock. The phone bank opened at 6am on the 9th and will close at 6pm on Sept 12th.
WRAL-FM listeners can also get in on the Tell a Friend contest…make a pledge, get your friends to do the same, and win a trip for 4 to anywhere American Airlines flies (continental US) plus $1,000 cash!

Sister station WRAL-TV helped MIX get the Radiothon off to a good start by broadcasting half-hour programs at 12:30pm, 7:30pm and 11:35pm on the first day of the event. The programs featured patients and their families, volunteers who support on-going programs and the doctors who provide treatment and conduct research at Duke.
Over the past 10 years, MIX 101.5 has raised over 5 million dollars for the kids at Duke Children’s Hospital.
