As a parent, my kids are the most important thing in my life. I'm certain this is the case for you as well. That's why 97 5 KGKL is proud once again to support St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in its mission to defeat childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases.

Our family has been touched by the loss of more than a few children over the last few years and THAT'S why this is so important to us.

Today and tomorrow (Thursday and Friday, February 1st and 2nd), we're opening the phone lines for San Angelo and all surrounding areas so we can all work together to make a difference in the lives of so many.

Becoming a Partner in Hope with St. Jude means making a $20/month pledge. We have two ways to make a donation: Call 1-800-592-3488 or text BRAVE to 785833 then click the link from St. Jude to donate. Or just click here to donate.

And this time, all Partners in Hope who make that pledge will get their own 'This Shirt Saves Lives' t-shirt -- just like the one you see your favorite country stars wearing in the photo gallery above. Of course, any amount is appreciated, so donate if you can.

San Angelo’s St. Jude radiothon has raised nearly a quarter million dollars in the last 10 years thanks to our listeners' generous support. We're aiming sky-high this year, but can't get there without you, our loyal and generous 97 5 KGKL listeners.

Thank you to everyone at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital who's working hard to make a difference in so many lives.
