Here's a look back at the first day of our 2016 St. Jude Radiothon. 

Thanks to everyone in the XL Nation who called to become a Partner in Hope, supported St. Jude, volunteered to answer phones and helped in other ways. There are simply too many of you to count, and we can't tell you how grateful we are.

Today volunteers from Montana State University, Eskay Bridal, iLoveKickboxing, First Interstate Bank, Hearing Aid Institute and other loyal St. Jude supporters answered phones at XL Country.

If you missed it today, be sure to tune in tomorrow for day two. We'll be on air all day from 6 a.m. until 7 p.m. Friday, March 4. If you'd like to call and donate, the number is 1-800-372-4999.

By the end of day one, 139 people had signed up to be Partners in Hope.

One way to help St. Jude is to become a Partner in Hope for $20 a month. Your donation goes to help St. Jude treat children battling cancer and conduct research that may one day lead to a cure. You can see how many Partners in Hope we have in the colorful sticky note heart in the slideshow above. You'll notice the heart grown more and more as the radiothon continues.

The radiothon raises money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital to fund research to help children who are diagnosed with cancer and other deadly diseases.
