Matt Tritten, an underwriting sales associate for the radio station who partners with Station Manager John Coffey as a “Voice of the Bearcats” on the Bearcat Radio Network, said the KXCV-KRNW team hopes the fundraiser provides a fun activity amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We want people to get up, get active, compete and have a good time – even if all of us can’t get together in one place right now,” Tritten said. “Switching to a virtual 5K means you can be part of this event if you’re a Bearcat living in Maryville or Maine. Whether you are part of the Northwest family or the public radio family, we want you to know we’re still by your side in this difficult time.”
