All the funds raised each year stay in the local community and go towards supporting local children and youth with special needs, largely through Rotary’s partnership with One Kids Place Children's Treatment Centre (OKP) and NADY (Nipissing Association for Disabled Youth). The allocation of the funds is carried out by the Rotary club's Children's Committee.

Kevin’s Longest Morning 2017 Supporting Rotary4Kids”
 
NORTH BAY – The Rotary Club of North Bay launched its annual fundraiser, with the help of this year’s Rotary4Kids Ambassador, Summer Morison (10), a student at St. Hubert Catholic Elementary School, and representatives from the Nipissing Association for Disabled Youth (NADY) and One Kids Place today at One Kids Place Children’s Treatment Centre.
 
Entering its 15th year, the Rotary club, in partnership with NADY, will be holding its radio-a-thon to raise much needed funds in support of area children and youth with special needs.
 
The longest morning, with 100.5 KiSS morning host Kevin Oschefski, will be broadcast live from Tower Court at Northgate Shopping Centre, on Thursday, March 30th and wrap-up with a final morning show breakfast at Burger World on Hammond Street on March 31st, from 7-10 am.
 
Donations can be made online now at www.rotary4kids.ca, www.longestmorning.ca or during the broadcast by calling 705-499-3109 or in person at the shopping centre or by mail.
 
Rotary4Kids Chair, Jeff Rogerson, stated “Since its inception, the radio-a-thon has raised in the order of one million dollars that have gone towards numerous Rotary Children’s Committee projects such as the purchase of assistive devices, home renovations, vehicle conversions, enrollment into various programs, assistance to cover uninsured medical costs and out of town travel and funding for special needs teams, just to name a few”. The committee also provides approximately $30,000 in funding on an annual basis to NADY.  
 
Rotary Club President Natalie MacDougall added, “The success of this fundraiser would not be possible without the very generous support of individuals and families, and so many organizations and businesses, both large and small, in our community”.
