AURORA - Children's Hospital Colorado makes miracles happen every day. The doctors saves lives. The nurses and specialists make children feel comfortable.

The love extended to the children is just as exceptional as the medical expertise.

For the next three days, people throughout Colorado have the chance to say "thank you" and give back.

This is the 13th year that Alice 105.9 has taken a break from its regular programming to support Children's Colorado, the local Children's Miracle Network hospital.

ALICE 105.9's 36 Hours for Kids airs entirely from the hospital in Aurora. Donors are inspired by the stories of some very tough children that are broadcast over the radio

Up until 6 p.m. Friday, people can pledge to be a "Miracle Maker" with a $15 a month donation. Local businesses step up too with corporate donations.

In 2013, ALICE 105.9's 36 Hours for Kids raised more than $1.8 million.

Children's Colorado tell 9News that donations are allocated in these ways:

  • Offer family-centered care that supports parents, family and siblings as they participate in the day-to-day medical, emotional and social needs of patients
  • Make groundbreaking strides in research through studies that are leading to more effective treatments and cures for childhood illnesses-discoveries that can be brought to the bedside, benefiting children immediately
  • Provide financial access to care for children in need
  • Employ financial counselors to aid in directing parents to appropriate federal and state resources.
  • Cover the cost of care that government aid programs do not
  • Ensure access to quality care through Children's Network of Care and regional clinics
