Calgarians’ generosity showed on Friday as donations poured in for 770’s CHQR annual Pledge Day radiothon.

The event raised over $240,000 for the Calgary Children’s Foundation in 13 hours.

The day was emotional, with many recipients of the funds sharing their stories and what the money has meant to them.

BettyJo Kaiser, the foundation’s administrator, has been involved with the event for nine years.
