Radio One supports St. Jude with our annual Radiothon day on our Praise stations nationwide. To get us ready for that day, St. Jude hosts a Radio Cares weekend in Memphis at the hospital, and it’s always inspiring and enlightening.
In addition to learning about new protocols, new tools and advanced medical studies, we also get to tour the hospital, meet St. Jude staff and some of the amazing patients and their families. It give us an up close and personal account of the amazing life-saving and life changing work done each day at St. Jude.
This year we were also treated to musical performances by Anita Wilson, D’Avalon, Travis Greene, Erica Campbell and Jazmine Sullivan. Colleagues from across Radio One, including Willie Moore Jr., Cheryl Jackson from Praise DC and Sheilah Belle from Praise Richmond were able to enjoy the weekend as well. We are excited to bring this information back and get set for next year’s Radiothon so we can do bigger, better and more for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
