The 6th annual Radiothon was a big success! CKSW 570 and the Dr. Noble Irwin Regional Healthcare Foundation once again joined forces for 28 hours of fundraising and entertainment. The Foundation would like thank Golden West Radio for once again making this event possible.

With this years total, it is important to note that the Foundation has raised over $1,000,000 through the six years of Radiothon. All of which has been put to use to Keep Healthcare Strong in south west Saskatchewan by providing the Cypress Regional Hospital with state of the art equipment such as the digital mammography unit, the simulation lab and the CT Scanner. A strong regional hospital is important to the entire region.
Once again, Thank You! Your support is needed, and is greatly appreciated!
Glenda Lee Allan and Clay Thompson reflect on the success of this years Radiothon and reaching the $1,000,000 mark.
