 “It’s one of the most fulfilling events we do,” said The C100 Breakfast Club’s Moya Farrell, who has participated in the IWK Radiothon every year since its inception. “We meet such wonderful families every year and knowing the IWK can support them is incredible.” Now in its 14th year, the IWK Radiothon has become a highly anticipated annual event.  In 2014, the fundraiser collected more than $290,000 for families across the Maritimes who are cared for at the IWK. Media are encouraged to attend at any point throughout the event.
