Last year marked the first year for a big fundraising event called the Tour de Gem - where cyclists ride for any one of more than 40 participating charities.

Gerry Chadwick, co-chair of Tour de Gem and President of Sunbelt Business advisers, spoke with WYSO Weekend host Jerry Kenney about the power people have in combining their marketing and athletic abilities.

In this interview for WYSO Weekend, Chadwick also offers up some high praise for the participants who have gotten this year's event off to a great start, and puts out the call for more volunteers who will be needed to make the event successful.

Tour de Gem is Saturday, September 1.  Learn more at: www.tourdegem.org

Jerry Kenney was introduced to WYSO by a friend and within a year of first tuning in became an avid listener and supporter. He began volunteering at the station in 1991 and began hosting Alpha Rhythms in February of 1992. Jerry joined the WYSO staff in 2007 as a host of All Things Considered and soon transitioned into hosting Morning Edition. In addition to now hosting All Things Considered, Jerry is the host and producer of WYSO Weekend, WYSO's weekly news and arts magazine. He has also produced several radio dramas for WYSO in collaboration with local theater companies. Jerry has won several Ohio AP awards as well as an award from PRINDI for his work with the WYSO news department. Jerry says that the best part of his job is being able to talk to people in the community and share their experiences with WYSO listeners.
