A press release was recently issued regarding the annual St. Jude Radio thon held in Thayer each year.

“We are pleased to announce the 32nd Annual Andrew Eckman Shelter Insurance Hirsch Feed and Farm Supply, Taylor Grubaugh Chevrolet, Buick, GMC, K-Kountry Cares for kids St. Jude Radio thon, Wednesday Feb. 10 on AM 1290-FM 103.7 The Gift, Anywhere, Anytime K-Kountry 95 and 100.9 The Train, beginning at 6 a.m.

Last year with the help of the area businesses, schools, surrounding community events and YOU, we were able to raise over $228,000 for the kids at St. Jude. It’s important to know that 100% of the radio thon dollars goes to the cause in supporting the research and operation of St. Jude Hospital in Memphis, Tenn. and the St. Jude wing in Springfield, Mo. We’re pushing the goal for 2021 to $240,000. Let’s do this!

The research gained at St. Jude is shared freely with children’s hospitals all over the world. Because of you, we have the faith to step out once again and set our goal high for the kids at St. Jude! Sadly, our region has numerous patients that are being treated at St. Jude right now, so the effort continues as we work to find cures and save lives.

If you or your business wants to be involved in one of the most emotional and uplifting days of our entire year, we ask you to contact us by calling 417-264-7211 or you may also email marketing@kkounty.com. Check our websites for more details and fund-raising opportunities. No act is too small for a child at St. Jude.”
