On Friday, September 14th at 8:30 a.m. PDT/11:30 a.m. EDT, I will be interviewed on KUYI Hopi Radio about my upcoming bike ride to raise $10,000 for the Hopi Cancer Assistance Fund. The interview will also include Monica Navumsa, Executive Director of the Hopi Foundation and Gloria Lomaheftewa from the Hopi Cancer Assistance Fund. KUYI will stream the interview live online.
The radio station has created a promotional ad that it has been airing about the interview. If you're a Queen fan, you will want to listen :-)
