Pay 4 Play 2020 will be November 12 & 13.

Join us in making this year an even bigger success for 105.7 the X and the People's Morning Show. 


Pay 4 Play 2019 raised a record-breaking $359,410!! A new record!
Watch the recap video:





The People's Pay 4 Play is a 28-hour radio marathon hosted by Nipsey, Jennifer Shade and Earl David Reed 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, listeners can call in to request songs in exchange for donations. The further the song is from The X's Active Rock Radio format, the higher the donation must be to hear that song on the radio. Of course, you don't HAVE to make a song request. You can simply make a donation to help us reach our goal! And have an even bigger impact by becoming a Pay 4 Play sponsor!

Meet our 2020 Champion: Owen

Owen was born 14 weeks early and suffered complications with his kidneys, lungs and gallbladder. But the most significant challenge was Owen’s nutrition. At four months old, he became extremely sick. Owen had emergency surgery where doctors discovered he had necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC). NEC is a life-threatening disease that causes bacteria to destroy the intestines. In Owen’s case, NEC caused him to become septic. Owen’s damaged intestine was removed, but his intense journey to wellness was just beginning.

Owen is now gaining weight, growing and loving life AND food! Owen’s mom said it was a miracle to watch Owen eat pizza and cake at his 7th birthday party. Donations to Children’s Miracle Network at Penn State Children’s Hospital fund research, life-saving equipment and life-changing programs like the feeding clinic which treats 25,000 patients annually. Thank you for giving kids like Owen every chance for a miracle!
