Eads Broadcasting Corporation Sponsors Virtual Race

Samaritan’s first ever virtual 5K, 10K and half marathon will take place Sept. 10-27 and wouldn’t be possible without support from the community. Eads Broadcasting Corporation is a gold sponsor for the Samaritan Walk Run Roll, donating $2,500 to the cause, and supporting the Lebanon Community Hospital Foundation (LCHF).

Eads Broadcasting Corporation is locally owned and manages the KGAL, KSHO and The Action Stream radio stations.

“We love our community and enjoy being an active participant in local events,” said Charlie Eads, vice president and general manager of Eads Broadcasting Corporation. “We are excited to sponsor the Samaritan Walk Run Roll and help raise funds for those that need it most.”

Charlie Eads is a long-time board member of the Lebanon Community Hospital Foundation.

The $40 entry fee to participate in the race will benefit Samaritan Health Services’ Patient Support Program. Currently, 486 community members are benefiting from this program through assistance with expenses such as medical bills, transportation, prescriptions, nutritional supplements and groceries. In 2019, the program distributed $45,000 in assistance in Benton, Lincoln and Linn counties.
