WAUSAU, WI (WSAU) -  Today’s the second day of a central Wisconsin radio station’s fundraising effort for St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital. 101.9 WDEZ is broadcasting live from Trig’s in Wausau for the event, as volunteers help man the phone bank and people stop by to make donations and lend their support.

This is the twelfth year of raising money for a this cause. The Country Cares for St. Jude’s radiothon has raised 1.1 million dollars locally in the first eleven years.

WDEZ’s Joe Cassady says it’s important to give what you can, since the cost of care given to patients and families is expensive, adding it takes 1.7 million dollars to operate St. Jude's Children's Hospital every day.

Several central Wisconsin patients have benefited from treatments and research at St. Jude’s.

If you can’t stop by in person to help or donate, you can do so online at WDEZ.com.
