On April 20, WHTS-FM (Grand Rapids) morning co-host Jackie Green ran a 26.2-mile marathon through downtown Grand Rapids, raising nearly $4,000 for Kids Food Basket, an organization that provides meals for kids and has stepped up its efforts during the COVID-19 pandemic when local children no longer have the guaranteed easy access to the safety net of school and school meals.

Green has been training for months, after qualifying to run the Boston Marathon. That race has since been postponed to September, due to Coronavirus concerns.

For Green’s Grand Rapids marathon, she was accompanied by her morning co-host Rachel Gray, who followed along in the WHTS (Hot-FM) vehicle as Jackie’s pace car.
