On December 11, 2015, Newsradio 1040 WHO held their first radiothon on behalf of the Pinky Swear Foundation to help pay the mortgages, utility bills, and other financial needs of families who have a child with cancer in Iowa and across the U.S. 

The tradition continued in 2018, and the radiothon has now raised over $373,000 for the Pinky Swear Foundation. Since January of 2016, 312 financial gifts have been provided to Iowa families with an average gift of $900.

The 2019 WHO Pinky Swear Radiothon offers a variety of partnership opportunities. To learn more about becoming a partner, please contact Iowa Area Director, Mary Mendenhall-Core at mary.core@pinkyswear.org.
