A two-day radiothon from the radio station Alice 105.9 helped Children's Hospital Colorado raise $1.4 million on Feb. 5 and 6.

DJs from 105.9 shared stories from patients throughout the event to promote the nonprofit.

Activities and entertainment like magicians and gift presentations to patients took place as well.

Chase McNary, a former contestant from ABC's reality show "The Bachelorette," also made an appearance at the hospital for the event.

A giant check with the amount raised was presented to the hospital by patients and representatives from the radio station at the end of the radiothon. The hospital is a nonprofit organization aiming to further research and provide treatment for children facing a variety of illnesses.

“Kids are incredibly different; they need incredibly different care. As a nonprofit hospital, Children's Hospital Colorado partners with our generous community to help make this specialized care, designed just for children, possible,” said Jen Darling, president and CEO of Children's Hospital Colorado Foundation, according to a release about the event.

The radiothon was sponsored by Colorado Marriott Hotel and Safeway.

“Alice 105.9 listeners and community members who donate through the radiothon inspire all of us by creating healthier futures, giving more firsts to kids and families — first breaths, first words, first steps — and making a truly incredible impact on the lives of children,” Darling said, according to the release.
