Season of Hope Radiothon on MIX 101.5 

We celebrated hope for children in our community! 

Thank you for helping us raise $541,874.39 for Duke Children's! 

The Season of Hope Radiothon on MIX 101.5 was the culmination of the Duke Children’s largest fundraising campaign each year. On December 12-13, 2023, Kyle, Bryan, and Sarah from MIX Mornings hosted a two-day broadcast showcasing incredible stories of hope and healing from our Duke Children's patients and their families. 

The generosity of our supporters and community has made an enormous impact, but kids at Duke Children's still need your help! If you haven't already, there is still time to give before December 31! 


The Season of Hope raises funds to benefit children’s programs and further support the continuation of excellence within the medical and surgical programs at Duke Children’s.

MIX 101.5 has raised over $21M for the kids at Duke Children’s over the past 29 years thanks to the compassion and caring of MIX 101.5 listeners, our sponsors, patient families and hundreds of volunteers.

The Season of Hope! 

The Season of Hope marks the most critical fundraising period of the year for Duke Children's. Starting in November and culminating with the annual Season of Hope Radiothon on MIX 101.5, this is the time of year when compassionate individuals from around the Triangle come together to support Duke Children's with a donation. This generous support is critical to advancing our mission of giving hope and healing to our patients and families. 

The 2023 Season of Hope raised  $541,874.39 for Duke Children's. 

Become a Hero for Hope! 

Every new donor who joins our monthly sustainer program during the Season of Hope provides hope to children - literally! We will deliver a special Duke Children's teddy bear to inpatients at Duke Children's for every new Hero for Hope. In 2023, we delivered 222 adorable teddy bears during Radiothon to kids in need of care and comfort. Will you provide that same comfort this year to kids who need it? 

Your monthly gift means lasting impact. Set up an ongoing recurring credit card payment for any dollar amount. Set it and forget it. Your recurring gift will provide sustaining revenue that will help our patients every day.

Hope for Harper

Every day we have the honor of meeting brave children and their families. These families inspire us with their strength and courage. Harper, diagnosed at only 8 years old with acute lymphoblastic leukemia, is one of these amazing children. 

Generous support from donors helps fuel programs that are changing lives. Help celebrate the launch of this year's Season of Hope with a special gift that honors Harper's bravery, optimism, and kindness -- matched dollar-for-dollar up to $27,400 by the Arby's Foundation. Your gift will make an immediate impact during the holiday season and will go TWICE as far during this special time of year.
