Pat with red

THOSE RADIO KIDS is founded by Chardon, Ohio resident Pat Rullo to provide a voice to young people through radio. It is open to all youth with a special emphasis on those who face illness, disability, are homeless or have a life experience to share. Adults with inspiring stories to tell about challenges they faced during youth are also invited to interview. Proceeds fund THE SEWPORT PROJECT.
