iHeartMedia’s WKDD-FM Akron raised $452,000 for Akron Children’s Hospital in its 17th annual "Have a Heart, Do Your Part Radiothon," February 11-13. The radiothon featured five-year-old Fiona Smith, who had a kidney removed and endured months of chemotherapy and radiation. Fiona is now in remission. Last year, Fiona turned in 36 pounds of quarters, nickels, dimes and pennies as a "Change Bandit," or volunteer who asks family and friends to donate coins.
