Audacy raised over $100,000 for Project Sanctuary during KQMT-FM (99.5 The Mountain)'s "Project Sanctuary -- Helping Heroes Heal Radiothon" in Denver. The amount donated during the fifth annual radiothon brought the overall fundraising total to over $250,000 since 2018. The radiothon was broadcast live on Veteran's Day, November 11. Throughout the one-day event, programming featured interviews with service members and veterans, their families and organization volunteers/counselors.

"I'm so incredibly proud of the Mountain team and our loyal listeners coming together to help our veterans and their families with Project Sanctuary," said Audacy Denver Senior Vice President and Market Manager Micah Goldberg. "This radiothon further demonstrates the immense power of our medium with raising much needed funds for important causes in our communities."

Heather Ehle founded Project Sanctuary in 2007 while working as a registered nurse after she discovered no organization was helping the military family as a unit. Ehle founded the organization on the principle that when one person serves, the whole family serves, and the best way to support the troops was to create an organization supporting the entire family. What began as one retreat boot-strapped together in the mountains of Colorado has since grown into a national organization serving thousands of at-risk military families across the country. To date, Project Sanctuary has served more than 7,200 military families through Therapeutic Retreats.
