The 12-hour radio Mott Takeover fundraiser is under way at WTKA-AM (1050). The annual event, the first part of the three-day Griese/Hutchinson/Woodson Champions for Children's Hearts Weekend, features current and former members of the Michigan football program on the air, raising money for C.S. Mott Children's Hospital.

Former Michigan football coach Lloyd Carr and kicker Jay Feely started the day, which will conclude this afternoon with athletic director Dave Brandon and Michigan football coach Brady Hoke.

We contribute, in loving memory of our son who lost his precious life 2 weeks before his 3rd birthday. Please help fight CHD in memory of our son and all families who grieve the death of their child and for those who continue to fight the battle. I hope people consider making a donation. Congenital Heart Defects is the most frequently occurring birth defect, and is the leading cause of birth-defect related deaths. For every dollar provided by the national medical funding arm of the American government, the National Institute of Health (NIH), only one penny is provided for pediatric research, and only a portion of that penny goes to support research on heart defects, the most common birth defect (Children's Heart Foundation).
