Yesterday the Type One Trio was able to take part of the American Family Children's Hospital Radiothon! This was a really neat opportunity for each of the T1T members, and was a great way to give back to UW Madison (AFCH) for the amazing care they have shown us many others.
We were interviewed on two separate radio stations 93.1 and Q106.
The first station was Q106 with hosts, Candy and Potter. This station was rather difficult for us, seeing it was our the first time on the radio and we were unfamiliar "with the drill". Although, at first, we weren't sure how it would go, the staff were really nice, and that helped put us at ease.
Seeing this was a fundraiser, the radiothon staff had us choose a goal of callers that would donate fifteen dollars every month for a year. We decided to go for 15 callers per thirty minutes. Surprisingly we met our goal for both stations, which we thought was pretty cool! :)
In the end, the three days of Radiothon brought in the grand total of $613,358 raised for helping those admitted into AFCH.
Though we were nervous, once we got going all of us were surprised at how much fun we had.
