American Cancer Society – Rise and Shine 5K

IMG_1002WGLZ left the comfort of our air-conditioned studio and traveled out in the community to help raise awareness and money for the fight against cancer.  The Rise and Shine 5k fun run/walk was held on Saturday, September 18th at Grand Vue Park in Glen Dale, WV.

WGLZ DJs Robert Straight and Nicholas Strope put down some classic hits and high energy music to pump up the crowds and even provided a countdown to kick off the great race.IMG_2703


WGLZ would like to thank the Marshall County chapter of the American Cancer Society and Grand Vue Park for inviting us out to support this event!  If you have an event that you would like to see one of our DJs at let us know.

Over 100 runners and walkers laced up their shoes to run and walk a great course across the park.  Two of those participants included the WGLZ faculty advisor’s wife and daughter.
