The reason I got into radio was to make a difference. I'm personally involved with many local organizations, as well as the hundreds we work with through the station. Here are just a few of the groups I spend more time helping:
University of Iowa Children's Hospital, CMN, and Dance Marathon
The ARC of East Central Iowa
Knights of Columbus
Marion Youth Baseball
I enjoy coaching baseball, playing tennis, kickboxing, listening to music, playing board games with my kids, riding rollercoasters and taking long walks on the beach.
My favorite teams that I follow:
· Minnesota Vikings Football
· Nebraska Cornhuskers Football
· Univ of North Dakota Fighting Sioux Hockey
· Linn Mar Lions
· Iowa Hawkeyes
· Minnesota Twins & Cincinnati Reds Baseball
This is not your typical touch football. It's a touching football moment which took place over the weekend atthe Nebraska Spring Football game. As you may know, I cheer for the Hawkeyes every weekend, unless they are playing Nebraska. Im a die hard Husker fan. The team allowed a 7 year old, Jack Hoffman, to suit up for the game and actually get into the game for one play in the 4th quarter. The little boy has brain cancer. He ran 79 yards for a touchdown. Even if you were not there, it will bring a tear to your eye just watching the clip, knowing that this little kid is running for his life and what may be the highlight of his life. Pretty cool. Perhaps Iowa can do something like this for their spring game coming up on April 27th.
