RICHLAND, Wash. - Local broadcast DJ's from Radio-Tri-Cities are holding their 5th annual 36-hour telethon fundraiser at Kadlec Regional Medical Center.

The "Kadlec 4 Kidsathon" donations will go towards Kadlec Foundation and the Neonatal Center for Premature babies.

Broadcasters and volunteers started taking phone calls this morning and will continue to collect money until 6pm on Friday.

In the last four years the foundation has raised more than $300,000.

Broadcasters said they want more parents of premature babies to be able to get services in the area and not have to travel. 

"This isn't about Kadlec, not for one minute. This is about families and taking care of their babies," said Larry Christensen, Kadlec's Foundation Director.

Broadcasters are going live from 94.9 FM the Wolf.
