The 2020 Crusade will look different due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

UPDATE: Sunday, August 9

It has been a year for fundraising challenges but that didn’t stop Kentuckiana from coming together to help the WHAS Crusade for Children. America’s most successful telethon raised $4.8 million during its 67th telethon after a generous donation of $36,479 from the Sam Swope Family Foundation to round up the total.
