RICHLAND, WA - A 36 hour telethon aims to raise money for Kadlec's Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. It's the only level three unit in the region. 

Currently, Kadlec is expanding the branch from around 3,000 square feet to 15,000 square feet.

"We do not have all the money raised yet for the project but we're going to keep right on raising it until we reach our goal and every dollar counts. Every dollar helps. We've had a lot of support from grateful families blessed with bouncing babies because they've been able to get help here at the nic unit," said Larry Christensen of Kadlec.

Radio Tri-Cities puts the annual event together. You can donate by stopping by the big white tent in front of Kadlec on Swift Boulevard or by calling (509) 942-2039.
