WCPO is hosting a telethon to support a cause that hits home for many families across the Tri-State including the family of our very own chief meteorologist, Steve Raleigh.

After the tragic death of their daughter Madi, Raleigh and his wife, Julie, set out on a mission to support those struggling with addiction and other mental health illnesses and their families.

That mission culminated in Madi’s House, a place to provide therapeutic and educational sessions, along with fun events to help people heal and reconnect with the world.
