In 2007, WRAL-TV and WRAL-FM MIX 101.5 joined forces to support the Komen Race for the Cure in Raleigh. Held each June on the campus of Meredith College, the event raises funds and awareness for breast cancer research and survivors.
In its first year, Team WRAL won honors as the largest corporate team and largest fundraising team as CBC employees, viewers and listeners banded to run and walk together. And the success has continued over the past decade.
WRAL-TV and MIX 101.5’s support of the Race for Cure has continued with Team WRAL and Team Lynda, headed by MIX 101.5 Morning Show Co-Host Lynda Loveland, over the years, with expanded Breast Cancer Awareness stories on WRAL.com and more.
