L & L BROADCASTING Country WUBB (BOB 106.9)/SAVANNAH, GA morning host TIM LEARY participated in a MEALS ON WHEELS event, "MILES FOR MEALS 5K," on SATURDAY (5/18).
The event was in an effort to provide meals to hungry senior citizens through the SENIOR CITIZENS, INC. organization. LEARY and his running mates- WUBB morning show co-host CLAIRE BEVERLY and LEARY’s wife KAREN- decided to dress as food during their run.
"I’ll admit that I did get a little nervous when a corral of horses started to charge at me when I past them. But if we helped to put food on the tables of hungry seniors by dressing up as food... outrunning a small stampede is not a problem," said TIM, who finished the run with a time of 27:36. About running in costume, he added, "I seriously almost passed out from heat exhaustion at mile marker 2. A giant felt and foam apple costume tends not breathe a lot, nor does the big foam stem hat I wore with it."
It is estimated that the event raised more than $10,000 for the cause. Final totals are still being tallied.
