WYSU Seeks Donations During Monthlong Fundraising Effort

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – Youngstown State University’s public radio service, 88.5 WYSU-FM, is conducting a donor and membership awareness campaign throughout October. 

During the montlong “Getting There Together” fundraising effort, the station is encouraging listeners to make online donations to support WYSU’s programs.

As part of the campaign, WYSU director Gary Sexton again will participate in a running challenge. His plan is to run 1 mile every weekday hour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. throughout the month, plus an additional 2 miles for a total of 200 miles. Sexton is urging supporters to donate a dollar amount per mile HERE.

Sexton, with the help of some friends, including Chicky Chix Films, produced a training video titled “The Revenge of the Chickens.” The video can be viewed HERE.

“I hope my running and video inspires listeners to support my challenge, and, through it, your local public radio station,” Sexton said.
