32nd Annual Z99 Radiothon Raises $643,144
Z99 hosts CC and Lorie hit the airwaves once again for 36 hours, sharing stories of heartbreak and triumph, to help save babies’ lives. Thanks to unwavering support from so many generous people in southern Saskatchewan, the 32nd Z99 Radiothon raised $643,144 for Hospitals of Regina Foundation in support of the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) at Regina General Hospital. That brings total raised to more than $10 million since the Radiothon was launched in 1987.
The NICU is located in the Rawlco Centre for Mother Baby Care at the Regina General Hospital. Each year, around 500 babies from 24 to 42 weeks old require care in the unit. The NICU, which also includes the special care nursery for babies who require less intensive care, has capacity for 29 babies. On average, 21 babies a day require care in the unit.
