Rush Donates $500,000 to Kick Off Cure-A-Thon

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: Today, as we’ve been telling you all week, is a special edition of Open Line Friday. Today marks the 21st year of our Leukemia-Lymphoma Cure-A-Thon. This is a one-day event where this radio program goes to you, this audience, to help cure the blood cancers. This is our 21st effort. This is our third decade. We’re moving into our third decade of doing this, and every year — if I may talk about you for a moment — you have donated and contributed more than the previous year, even last year. Last year we all started the Cure-A-Thon thinking we’d be lucky to get anything with the economy being what it was.

And you had everybody in tears starting in the first half hour of last year’s program because we were on a pace that, if it held up, was gonna eclipse the previous year, even in the midst of economic circumstances like that. I tell people about this all the time. We do this one day a year but we don’t even go wall-to-wall with it. We have a three-hour program here, and maybe, all told, 45 minutes of the three hours is devoted to fundraising for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of America, the Cure-A-Thon. The amount of money that’s raised is unbelievable. Forty-five minutes, one year.
