LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Radio listeners in Lubbock may be familiar with the Kidd Kraddick show. It's aired locally by Mix 100, and each year they hold a fundraiser known as "Kidd's Kids."

The goal of the fundraiser is to raise money for terminally and chronically ill children and send them to Disney World. Thursday morning, some of the Mix 100 crew set up at Market Street to help take donations.

"This is one day or several days that they get to go to Walt Disney World, forget about hospital bills, the things that unfortunately they have to deal with in their daily lives," said DJ Jerri Cruz.

This year, two kids from Lubbock, Caden Ramirez and Jonathan Flores, will be joining Kidd Kraddick and his crew on the trip.

If you want to support Kidd's Kids in its mission to help create memories that last a lifetime for children with special medial needs,  you donate online by [clicking here].
