Cause-Driven Events

chapt_land_image_defaultAthletic events in Alaska often have a purpose. The heart run, the ski for women.  We look at cause-driven events, and why they’re important to the people involved and to the entire community. Host Charles Wohlforth is joined by a bicyclist who lives with diabetes and rides to help raise money to fight the disease, and a runner who got inspired by Leukemia survivors to help get others involved.

HOST: Charles Wohlforth
