You are about to witness what the Capital Region is all about, and it is something special to see.

Caring. Generous. Willing to help others. Big Hearts. Charitable. These are just a few of the many amazing things I could say about all who live in the Capital Region and GNA Nation. I could go on and on. You see, working here at the radio station I have seen it first hand in my 2 plus years here in Albany: a non stop desire to give back and help others. And it's a powerful and inspiring thing to watch.

Over the next 2 days, you will see all the characteristics I wrote above front and center as we embark on GNA's 13th Annual Country Cares for St. Jude Kids Radiothon presented by Adirondack Tire and Service. You and I will get to witness something special as we broadcast live for 26 hours for a very important fight - the fight against childhood cancer. You will see GNA listener after GNA listener step up to become a St. Jude Partner In Hope to fight right alongside children fighting the battle of their lives.

We are hoping over the next 2 days you too will find it in your heart to join this important fight. For the next 2 days volunteers will be ready to take your call the Northeast Pest Control Phone Bank at 1-800-372-4999 to become a Partner In Hope for only $20 per month. Only $20 per month to help save a child's life. When you say it that way, doesn't sound like much money at all, right?
