Pay 4 Play 2020: November 12 & 13

THANK YOU for another incredible event! Read recap article.
The People's Pay 4 Play is a 28-hour radio marathon hosted by Nipsey, Jennifer Shade, and Robb from the People's Morning Show on 105.7 The X to raise money for Children's Miracle Network at Penn State Children's Hospital. During the event, which runs November 12, 6 a.m. - November 13, 10 a.m., listeners can call in to request songs in exchange for donations. The further the song is from the X's active rock format, the higher the required donation. Of course, you don't HAVE to make a song request. You can simply make a donation to help us reach our $400,000 goal. NEW this year - Pay 4 Play will be video-streamed on during the day. That means you'll have more opportunities to "see" not just hear the broadcast in action. See the live stream schedule below for a few fun highlights!

There is no phone bank due to COVID-19 and no visitors are permitted at the X studio. If you do not wish to make your gift online, please mail a check to CMN P.O. Box 852, Hershey, PA 17033 (write Pay 4 Play in the memo line) or call our office 717-531-6606 to make alternate arrangements. Now, let's ROCK!

Kids like Owen can't wait for things to go back to normal. They need help now. Your gift, no matter the amount, will help children and families in need at Penn State Children’s Hospital. 

Owen was born 14 weeks early. At four months old, Owen developed necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC), which severely damaged his intestines. He needed surgery to remove the damaged intestines. As a result, nutrition became a major challenge. At age four, Owen was finally healthy enough to begin solid foods and underwent intense therapy to learn how to eat, starting with just a cake sprinkle! Today, Owen enjoys all kinds of foods. Pizza is his favorite! In addition to Pediatric Intensive Care Unit equipment and programs like Child Life, Owen also benefited from a CMN-funded medical camp — he learned to ride a bike! See below for more examples of your dollars at work.
