ROCK SPRINGS, WYOMING (April 15, 2020) — WyoRadio and The Radio Network are teaming up to host the “Cruise the Drag to Beat COVID-19” event this Friday from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

 

According to Bruce Pivic of WyoRadio, the event aims to collect donations for the Memorial Hospital Foundation to assist front line health care workers. Pivic, Island Richards of Kelly’s Convenience Centers, and Al Harris of The Radio Network have each pledged to match donations up to $1,000.

Rock Springs and Green River residence are invited to join the “cruise” in their own vehicles (location information below).  Participants are encouraged to honk their horns while cruising as an audio support to patients of COVID-19, health care workers, and area first responders. Proper social distancing advisories are encouraged and no stops or gatherings will occur during the “cruise”.

Donation collection boxes will be set up at the Kelly’s Convenience Center on Sunset Drive in Rock Springs and the Green River Chamber of Commerce. Cash or checks will be accepted with checks made out to the Memorial Hospital Foundation. Donations from those not on the cruise are also encouraged.
