Zimmer’s first radiothon to benefit Columbia’s True North is underway on our sister station KCMQ (FM 96.7).

The radiothon’s aim is to help True North continue to provide a safe space for survivors of domestic and sexual abuse. True North received more than 4,500 calls for service in 2021. True North envisions a community free from domestic and sexual violence, where healthy relationships thrive.

Columbia’s True North started as “The Shelter” in the 1970s, when Mizzou students created a volunteer organization to assist rape survivors.

KCMQ’s radiothon continues until 6 pm.
