One Event To Benefit Many Agencies

Periodically on First Light…WDCB’s Gary Zidek visits with representatives from the region’s non-profits for our ‘Doing Good’ segment. The conversations not only highlight the work the agencies do, but also the volunteer opportunities for people that want to give back to their community. This week, the focus is on a single event that benefits many, the Human Race has raised close to $500,000 since it was started in 2011.  Gary talked with ‘Giving DuPage’ director Shefali Trivedi about the unusual fundraiser.
