Day 1 of GNA's Country Cares for Kids Radiothon is in the books, and GNA Nation stepped up BIG TIME to fight childhood cancer.

You, the GNA listener, continually amaze me. 1 Day. 235 members of GNA Nation signed up to be Partners In Hope. $48,750 raised for St. Jude. Just amazing!! Your generosity warms my heart and just reinforces what we already knew: your willingness to help others is unmatched.

It was a rollercoaster of a day. Some tears were shed, but most of all we got to experience the hope that St. Jude perpetuates. It is an amazing cause to be a part of, and we can't wait to get back on the rollercoaster for day two tomorrow. You are helping us to do great things like hit each hourly goal and take those steps to get closer to a 100% childhood cancer survival rate.

If you are reading this and did not donate today, I invite you to listen in tomorrow to see what St. Jude is all about. And I am convinced when you hear the message of St. Jude you too will sign up to be a Partner In Hope.
