About Season of Hope

Season of Hope is the year-end fundraising campaign for Duke Children's, culminating with the two-day MIX 101.5 Radiothon broadcast on December 14 and 15. During this time of year when philanthropy and goodwill is at its peak, the Triangle community can rally behind the kids who are being treated at Duke Children's. 
 
The MIX 101.5 Radiothon has raised over $19 million for Duke Children's over the past 26 years thanks to the compassionate and caring MIX 101.5 listeners. 
 
Supporting Season of Hope and Radiothon isn't just a gift of money: 

It is a gift of hope and healing to a family that needs it...

...a gift of hope to sick children who may be impacted by discoveries made at Duke...
 
...and a gift of a healthier future to all children.

How can I get involved?

GIVE HOPE to families that need it. Make a gift today! 
 
SPARK HOPE for innovative ways to heal children. Support a crowdfunding project addressing critical needs for our pediatric patients.
