2022 Kapiolani Radiothon for Kids

For the second year in a row, the Kapi‘olani Radiothon for Kids raised more than half-a-million dollars for Hawai‘i children. Generous donors and community partners gave a total of $516,250 during the first in-person Kapi‘olani Radiothon broadcast since 2019.

The 2022 Radiothon included the unveiling of a custom-decorated ambulance designated for neonatal and pediatric critical care transport. Outfitted with a school of bright-yellow fish and two playful honu, the ambulance was revealed to Kapi‘olani’s pediatric Critical Care Transport Team on the second day of the Radiothon. The team of highly skilled and trained nurses and respiratory therapists relies on this dedicated children’s ambulance to transport critically ill babies and pediatric patients to and from Kapi‘olani.

The Kapi‘olani Radiothon for Kids is an annual event that helps support the exceptional care and innovative research at Kapi‘olani. Over the course of two days, Kapi‘olani patients share their compelling stories with KSSK’s thousands of listeners across the state who can then donate in support of specialized care for women and children in Hawai‘i and the Pacific Region that only Kapi‘olani can offer.

Nearly 20 local community groups, companies and sponsors joined D. Suehiro Electric, Inc. in lending their support to the 16th annual Kapi‘olani Radiothon. This year’s sponsors include UHA, Island Insurance, American Savings Bank, Hawaiian Electric, HMSA, Aloha Petroleum, First Insurance, AlohaCare, Windward Auto Group, Clinical Labs, Farmers Insurance, Elite Mechanical, GEICO, Islands Hospice, Motiv8 Foundation, L&L Hawaiian BBQ, Swinerton, Raising Cane’s and Rx for Miracles.
