The stars of iHeartMedia’s “The Breakfast Club” will be hosting the second annual #Change4Change Radiothon with a special spotlight on mental health.
Change4Change is an all-day radiothon, and this year it will use its platform to make contributions to PROJECT 375. PROJECT 375, is an organization that works to explore the potential of humans by utilizing conversation, education and inspiration. The charity was co-founded by NFL wide receiver Brandon Marshall and his wife Michi. Brandon was diagnosed with bipolar disorder in 2011 after struggling with mental illness for years.
In addition to the fundraiser, the charity event will also include interviews with representatives and celebrities from groups and charities, with a mission to alleviate mental health issues, as well as educating the community on health awareness. PROJECT 375 provides services including free community programs and resources addressing mental health such as PROJECT PREVENT, which provides Youth Mental Health First Aid training for parents, teachers and anyone working closely with youth; and Mind Over Matter Talks, where members of the organization visit schools to speak with students, principals, community leaders and parents about mental health.
“Following the success of the first-ever The Breakfast Club #Change4Change radiothon in 2017 in support of The Gathering for Justice Organization, we immediately knew that this was an effective platform to address relevant and timely community issues and to incite change,” said Thea Mitchem, EVP/Programming, iHeartMedia. “The #Change4Change radiothon is now an annual event, and this year, we look forward to working with PROJECT 375 to help drive critical conversations around mental health.”
