The KLLL Children's Miracle Network Radiothon exceeded their original goal of $300,000.
The radiothon raised more than $305,000 in just three days time. A huge increase from last year's radiothon which raised $252,000.
KLLL's DJ's credit their listeners generosity for beating the goal.
"We want to thank everyone who's called in so far in three days and donated their money. It's been a lot of fun. We are very very lucky to have a children's hospital like the one we have at UMC for all the South Plains," says Jeff Scott, a KLLL DJ.
The money raised will be used to provide the latest medical equipment and services to children on the South Plains and Eastern New Mexico.
