St. Judes Children's Hospital & Rylee Home Services Break Records in Radiothon 2024!

Rylee Home Services Proudly Supports Thunder 106’s St. Jude Radiothon in Record-Breaking Fundraising Event Uniting for a Noble Cause with Rylee Home Services

Every year, New Jersey-based country radio station Thunder 106 hosts the “Country Cares for St. Jude Kids Radiothon,” an event that has grown into a beloved tradition aimed at battling childhood cancer. In 2024, with significant backing from Rylee Home Services, the event achieved unprecedented success, breaking all previous fundraising records and leaving an indelible mark on all participants.

Event Overview Sponsored by Rylee Home Services 

Taking place on April 11 and 12, the Radiothon was a two-day affair dedicated to charitable giving. Thunder 106 encouraged its listeners to become “Partners in Hope” by making monthly donations through the St. Jude website, by phone, or text. The goal was clear: to gather essential funds for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, a pillar of hope for children facing cancer battles. Rylee Home Services played a pivotal role, prominently supporting the event and helping to maximize community outreach.

A Remarkable 106-Mile Journey with Rylee Home Services’ Support

One of the highlights was the commitment shown by Mike Ryan, Thunder 106’s VP of Programming, who took on a 106-mile walk along Jenkinson’s Boardwalk in Pt. Pleasant. His extraordinary effort was significantly bolstered by the sponsorship from Rylee Home Services, which helped draw even greater attention and donations.

Community Engagement and Enhanced Support from Rylee Home Services

The response from Thundernation, the loyal listeners of Thunder 106, was extraordinary. Thanks to the robust support from Rylee Home Services, the Radiothon raised a stunning $214,812. This record-breaking total showcased the power of community and sponsorship when united for a common goal. The involvement of Rylee Home Services not only amplified fundraising efforts but also underscored the company’s commitment to community welfare and philanthropic endeavors.

Celebratory Conclusion at “Boots on the Boards”

The fundraising walk concluded with the “Boots on the Boards” event at Jenk’s Club on April 14, made even more special by the active participation of Rylee Home Services. The celebratory atmosphere was further uplifted by a performance from country music star Scotty McCreery, with Rylee Home Services prominently featured as a key supporter, celebrating the courage of the children at St. Jude.

A 12-Year Legacy Highlighted by Rylee Home Services’ Commitment

Over the past dozen years, Thunder 106 has raised over $1.5 million for pediatric cancer care and research, with Rylee Home Services being a crucial part of this legacy in recent years. Their ongoing commitment has been essential in supporting numerous families and enhancing pediatric care initiatives.

Expressions of Gratitude and Continuous Support

Mike Ryan expressed profound gratitude, particularly highlighting the role of Rylee Home Services: “The overwhelming support from Rylee Home Services and our listeners has been a game-changer in our efforts to end childhood cancer. Their commitment has propelled this year’s success to new heights. I am deeply thankful for their partnership.”
