The two-day "Drive for Miracles" radiothon to benefit Golisano Children’s Hospital broke a record this year. Listeners and sponsors of 100.5 The Drive and WHAM 1180 donated more than $217,000.

Clear Channel Operations Manager Dave LeFrois said, “Our listeners appreciate the fact that Golisano Children’s Hospital is already one of the top medical facilities in the country. Their overwhelming support of this year’s campaign helps to ensure that children in this area always have access to the very best medical services – right in their own backyard. It’s truly a major league facility that we’re fortunate to have in Rochester.”

The money raised will stay in Rochester and will be used to support the construction of a standalone, state-of-the-art medical facility for children at the University of Rochester Medical Center.
