Owensboro Mud Run Winners List 2013

Up, Down and Dirty For a Cure is in the books!  And Owensboro's first-ever Mud Run was a HUGE hit.  Hundreds tackled the boot camp-inspired course last weekend at Diamond Lake Campground and Resort and a handful blazed through it.  While I ran the course, kissed the ground at the finish line, then immediately ran to the Atmos Energy grill to get a hamburger, others took the course VERY seriously.  And they just KILLED it!  Check out the full list of winners and our complete Mud Run Photo Gallery!

Clever Video Stresses Importance of Breast Cancer Exams [Video]

As you all know, I do a lot of work with the American Cancer Society.  I am the chairperson of Relay For Life here in Daviess County and I also emcee their annual Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk each fall.  I also work, annually, with Susan G. Komen for the Cure's Bowl for a Cure event here in Owensboro.  But, somehow, as involved as I am, I totally missed this!  Have you seen this video?  It's from Rethink Breast Cancer and it was first circulated online about a year ago.  And it's absolute genius.  Creators of the video wanted to get women to pay attention to really important information about self-examination.  And they did it by giving women what they want . . . MEN!  Look.

Chad & Jaclyn Drag Race in Motorized Shopping Carts! [Video]

Wednesday, Jaclyn and I celebrated Grocer's Day at Houchen's IGA on 25th Street in Owensboro.  In fact, there were American Cancer Society teams at every Houchen's location in the area selling pink ribbons for ACS' breast cancer research programs.  WBKR is a proud supporter of the American Cancer Society and its two primary fundraisers each year, Relay For Life and Making Strides.  So, naturally, Jaclyn and I volunteered to visit Houchen's and bag groceries for charity.  But, because we are the poster-children for ADHD, we got completely distracted and hotwired the motorized carts.  Let the drag race begin!!
