AURORA - Local radio personalities kicked off a radiothon fundraiser at Children's Hopsital Colorado as a part of the 12th annual Alice's 36 Hours for Kids event.

Alice 105.9 FM and the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals hope to raise $1 million by Friday to help support the children and families who depend on the care that Children's Hospital provides.

Throughout the event, patients will be sharing their inspirational stories of overcoming the odds.
