KRDO gets in the Race for the Cure
Cheers and tears were the emotions of the day at the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure in Colorado Springs. The scenic Garden of the Gods served as the backdrop for the event. Race promoters were hoping for 7,000 participants and their expectations were exceeded as more than 8,000 breast cancer survivors and family members ran (or walked) the 5K event. KRDO Anchors Heather Skold and Mireya Garcia hosted the after-party celebration. NEWSCHANNEL 13 aired promos, produced news stories and posted material on its home page to encourage participation.
