Over the course of 2 and a half days, Rob Wilson ran from the Nevada-California border to White City, raising money for Gamerosity, the Southern Oregon Epilepsy Group and the Phoenix cross country team.
More than $5,000 was raised– $4,000 for Gamerosity alone — and the executive director says he couldn’t be more thankful.
“It’s been cool to see how other people have taken this small, community idea, of just coming together to support kids with cancer and have made it their own,” Manny Munoz says.
That money will help to fund 4 hero packages for kids fighting cancer.
Executive Producer Kristin Hosfelt anchors NBC5 News weeknights at 5 and 6. Originally from the Bay Area, Kristin earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Broadcast Journalism from San Jose State University.
She came to KOBI-TV/NBC5 from Bangor, Maine where she was the evening news anchor. Kristin has won multiple journalism awards including Best Feature Reporting in the State of Maine. In 2017, her investigation on lead pipes in Medford’s water system was named Best News Series by the Oregon Association of Broadcasters.
When Kristin is not sharing the news, she’s traveling, hunting down the best burrito, or buried in a Jodi Picoult novel. She’s also a Green Bay Packers shareholder; if you see her out and about she’d be happy to tell you the story of how a California girl became a cheesehead.
