Celebrate and support the mission of RMHC-CR at our signature events


Traditionally held on a Friday and Saturday in late January, the Radiothon is one of our biggest and most anticipated fundraisers of the year. This event raises more than $100,000 annually to help support children and families facing serious health challenges in our community. Those families — along with many of our volunteers, sponsors, partners, and friends — share their stories over the airwaves as we take calls from generous donors across the Capital Region and beyond. It’s a heartwarming event that makes a huge difference!
