Big Change Roundup for Kids

Cameron Badger  

Every year from January to March, The UVM Children’s Hospital calls upon all of the “bandits” and “posses” in our community to shake the loose change from their pockets, wrangle up all of their loot, and donate it to the Big Change Roundup for Kids! All proceeds from this annual change collection campaign are used to support our vital Children’s Hospital programs and services.

The ongoing success of this yearly campaign is due in large part to our wonderful broadcasting partner, local hit country radio station 98.9 WOKO, which makes an extra-special effort during the fundraiser to fill the airwaves with stories of courage and hope from patients and families who have received life-saving care at the Children’s Hospital.

The Big Change Roundup has shown that a little change can go a long way – in 2017 alone, our bandits and posses raised $330,000 to benefit the UVM Children's Hospital.
