Tri-State Generation and Transmission

Tri-State Generation and Transmission is proud to kick off the 2022 Alice Cares for Kids Radiothon with a $2,000 donation to give hope to past, present and future patients like Jeff Sittner. 

When Jeff was born in 1985 in the close-knit community of Ovid, Colorado, they didn't have the technology they do now. There were no signs of a heart issues until weeks later when he started to turn blue and was rushed to the Children's Hospital Colorado in Denver. 

At six weeks old he underwent his first of many heart surgeries. Five years later, doctors performed the most serious surgery yet, telling Jeff's parents he had a thirty percent chance of making it off the operating table. He was at the hospital for three months. 

Over the years Jeff has undergone more than a dozen heart surgeries at Children's to reform his heart and restructure his arteries. He's overcome more health battles in 37 years than most experience in a lifetime, yet his outlook is one of gratefulness and a desire to give back. Now, he leads a Color Run fundraiser in his local community to give back to The Heart Institute at Children's Hospital Colorado. Read full story

It's Jeff's story and so many others that inspire us to volunteer each year for Alice Cares for Kids Radiothon who is celebrating over 20 Years of Miracles made possible by our generous community. Thank you for supporting Children's Colorado patients and families. Your donation is greatly appreciated.
