This Memorial Day from 3-6 pm, WCHL proudly airs “A Hero’s Best Medicine,” a national radio special (with a Chapel Hill tie) produced by the Fisher House Foundation, an organization that provides a home away from home for the families of hospitalized military veterans.
Founded by Zachary Fisher, the Fisher House Foundation is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year. Today, there are 65 Fisher Houses located near military and VA hospitals across the country – including one near Fort Bragg.
“A Hero’s Best Medicine” is produced by the Foundation and hosted by Doc Washburn. The first hour of the show (airing Monday at 3 pm on WCHL) will feature a segment on Chapel Hill’s annual “Marathon Jam” – a 12-hour musical jam session organized by John Santa and hosted by the American Legion, with proceeds benefiting the Fisher House. (You’ll hear WCHL’s Aaron Keck on the segment.)
Fisher House Foundation Programs and Community Relations VP Derek Donovan joined Aaron on WCHL this week.
Tune into WCHL on Monday from 3-6 pm to hear “A Hero’s Best Medicine” – and visit FisherHouse.org to hear more about the Fisher House Foundation.
