Special to 1812Blockhouse
The 2021 Catalyst Rehab Telethon is scheduled for Saturday, February 6 from 11:00 AM to 8:00 PM.
Since we are still in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, the in person celebration at the Richland Mall will be eliminated, but the event will continue as a televised virtual production so you can still “Watch it Happen” on WMFD-TV.
WMFD-TV may be seen over the air on 68. WMFD TV is also carried on all cable systems in North Central Ohio, some of which include Time Warner Cable Channel 15 in Mansfield, Shelby, Bellville, Butler, Loudonville, Jeromesville, and Shreve; 18 Counties of Direct TV in the Cleveland DMA channels 68 and 931; Dish Network in the entire Cleveland DMA Channel 8522 and Channel 12; and Doylestown cable channel 22. It may also be seen on Channel 9 in Norwalk and Willard; Channel 14 in New London, Lodi and West Salem, Polk and Cinnamon Lake.
We will celebrate 30 years of the Catalyst Rehab Telethon and hope you will tune in!
You can also watch this year’s Telethon live on the World Wide Web at www.wmfd.com.
