ELWOOD - The numbers have been released from the Team Jack Foundation’s 7th Annual State-wide Radiothon.

Representatives say last month, nearly $120,000 was raised for child brain cancer research.

The event was presented by The Home Agency, based in Elwood, and was aired on over 25 stations throughout Nebraska.

The Radiothon is a special event broadcasting stories of families affected by child brain cancer as well as those of popular figures like Rex Burkhead, Coach Jovan Dewitt and Dick Vitale.

The goal was is to raise research funds and awareness for the disease.

Since 2013, the annual Team Jack Foundation Radiothon has raised more than half a million dollars for the cause.
