Since 2013, Continental has proudly sponsored the annual St. Jude Country Cares radio-thon aired on Anchorage’s KBEAR 104.1. Each January, KBRJ’s on air team goes live for two days sharing the message and mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital of Finding Cures. This year, the Anchorage community along with KBRJ raised $83,000 over the course of two days! Because the majority of St. Jude funding comes from individual contributors, St. Jude has the freedom to focus on what matters most – saving children’s lives regardless of their financial situation. St. Jude has treated children from all 50 states and from around the world and freely shares the breakthroughs it makes, and every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists worldwide can use the knowledge to save thousands more children. Over the past 22 years, Alaskan’s have contributed over 1.9 Million dollars to support the research and families of children that have been diagnosed with cancer.
