WCVO/Columbus (104.9 the River) recently held it’s annual Columbus Family 5K featuring CURE International as it’s charity benefactor. Leading up to the event, River personalities adopted a different country CURE International serves to “Run for Kids Who Can’t” and help heal children born with clubfoot! Todd Stach, Chief Creative Officer/Director of Programming for 104.9 the River said: “It’s not every day that a group of 250 people get together to do something amazing, but that happened at the Columbus Family 5K presented by 104.9 the River and Reynoldsburg Family Dental. Raising awareness for CURE International and Running For Kids Who Can’t was such an inspiring way to spend a Saturday morning. We were grateful and honored to present CURE with a $2,700 check so that kids around the world can have club foot repaired.”
Eric Allen, Radio Marketing Manager with CURE, said, “I was blown away at how the team at the River really went all-in to not only make the race a huge success, but to really shine a light on helping heal kids with CURE! It was another great example of how CURE can team up with radio to impact a community and impact the world.”
