A Better Region 8: Support the UCP Telethon on Sunday

This Sunday is the 2015 UCP Telethon from noon to 7 p.m. The event will be live form the studio at ASU-TV and broadcast right here on KAIT (plus kait8.com and Region 8 News app). 

United Cerebral Palsy of Northeast Arkansas believes in "life without limits." They offer an array of services that are uniquely tailored to the individual needs of each person. 

From early intervention for infants and toddlers to supported living and employment services for adults, each service is designed to maximize the potential of those served and increase their level of independence. 

Last year's telethon raised over $99,000 to help people with Cerebral Palsy right here in North East Arkansas. The goal this year is to raise $100,000! That's a big goal and we need your help to get there. 

So join everyone on the Region 8 News team for the UCP Telethon this Sunday from noon to 7 right here on KAIT. Supporting UCP and its mission will make this A Better Region 8.
