CISN COUNTRY 103.9 GOES THE DISTANCE WITH YARDS FOR HOPE 

Edmonton’s Country Radio Station Partners with Hope Mission

EDMONTON – CISN Country 103.9 is proud to broadcast Yards for Hope, this year’s radiothon in support of Hope Mission, an organization dedicated to helping the hungry and homeless. Collectively, over the last decade, the annual radiothon has raised close to a million dollars.

Kicking off on Tuesday, October 4th at 4 p.m., the award-winning radio station will broadcast from The Brick Field at Commonwealth. Starting at one end zone of the football field, the live broadcast will move one yard for every thousand dollars donated. Radio hosts, Chris Scheetz, Jacqueline “Jack” Sweeney and Matt DeBeurs from CISN in the Morning, will continue to move up the field, aiming to travel 110 yards and reach the other end zone by 6 p.m. on Wednesday, October 5th.

“CISN is pleased to once again partner with Hope Mission in support of their Thanksgiving campaign for the homeless,” said Greg Johnson, Program Director, CISN Country 103.9. “We’re asking Edmontonians to give generously so that together, we can score another touchdown.”

To donate, please call Hope Mission 1-855-836-HOPE or give online at www.hopemission.com.
