KUSA - It's such a shocking and sad fact, but it's so important to know about it.
Every year in Colorado, 20,000 children are abused or neglected, and every year, an average of 30 of them die.

One of the agencies trying to reverse that trend is the Tennyson Center for Children in Denver. On Friday, you can help them out by listening to KOOL 105 on the radio.

The KOOL 105 Cares for Kids Radiothon is Friday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.

The 11-hour event will help raise funds for programs and services at the Tennyson Center for Kids. If you can listen in for awhile and donate any amount, it will be much appreciated.
