Special Olympics Missouri Announces Inaugural STL Day on the Runway
ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com), January 14, 2018 - For the first time ever, the public is invited to spend the day on the airfield at St. Louis Lambert International Airport (STL) in support of individuals with intellectual disabilities served by Special Olympics Missouri. Area law enforcement agencies are partnering with STL, Special Olympics and FedEx to bring this new family-friendly event to the St. Louis community.
STL Day on the Runway is Sunday, April 15 between 7:30 a.m. and 2 p.m. This inaugural family friendly event will include a 5K Race and Family Fun Walk, a Plane Pull® and a family festival with a variety of attractions and events.
"Through our partnership with Law Enforcement Torch Run®, Special Olympics Missouri has the honor of providing unique events in our local communities," said President and CEO Mark Musso. "We are excited to work with St. Louis Lambert International Airport, FedEx and our law enforcement partners to bring the St. Louis community together in an effort to raise awareness and break down social barriers and stigma that often surrounds individuals with intellectual disabilities."
"Many airports across the country have had the opportunity to host plane pulls and other events like these," said Airport Director Rhonda Hamm-Niebruegge. "This will be a first for STL and we're honored to partner with Special Olympics Missouri and FedEx for this inaugural event."
STL Day on the Runway is a fundraiser designed to provide participants with a unique experience while raising awareness and money to support individuals with intellectual disabilities served by Special Olympics Missouri.
Area runners can sign up now to be the first to run on an STL runway. The race course is set for portions of Runway 11-29 and its taxiways making it a clean, fast track that will allow runners great chances to improve their pace and for families looking to participate in a family walk designed for all ages! Prizes will be awarded in several categories.
STL Day on the Runway will feature a team competition Plane Pull. Teams of between 15 and 25 people can test their strength by pulling a FedEx cargo aircraft, estimated to weigh 190,000 lbs. This is a great team building opportunity! Prizes will be awarded in several categories.
STL Day on the Runway offers a fun family festival with activities for children and kids of all ages, including a mini pulling event, displays that give you a sneak-peak behind the scenes of the Airport and highlight some of the tools of our community’s first responders. Entertainment, opportunities to participate in activities with Special Olympics Missouri athletes, food trucks/food vendors, and more compliment this family friendly event.
All proceeds from STL Day on the Runway ensure that more than 6,000 Special Olympics Missouri athletes in the St. Louis community have the opportunity to participate in local and regional activities for little or no cost to them.

"Social Media Disconnect" Survey Reveals Technology Challenges
ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com), December 17, 2017 - The "Social Media Disconnect" survey is the first in a new quarterly series of polls the two organizations will conduct of parents and kids about the most concerning technology challenges families are dealing with.
Parents feel they know what teens are doing online, but teens don't think so: More than half (52 percent) of parents with teenagers age 14 to 17 say they are "extremely" or "very aware" of what their kids are doing online; just 30 percent of teens say their parents are "extremely" or "very aware" of what they're doing online.
James P. Steyer, CEO and founder of Common Sense, stated, "Kids are constantly experimenting with new technologies, and it is extremely challenging for parents to keep up. We have to check the pulse of parents and kids regularly on these issues in order to help families navigate the media landscape and make smart decisions. We are thrilled to partner with SurveyMonkey on this ongoing research initiative that will help us identify media use trends and concerns in real time so that we can provide timely advice and information to parents."
Parents are tracking their teens more than teens know: 26 percent of parents say they use a tracking or monitoring device or service to learn what their teens are doing online, while only 15 percent of kids think their parents do so. Teens are more honest than their parents give them credit for: 34 percent of parents believe their teens have hidden online accounts, but only 27 percent of teens say they do.
Parents are most nervous about Snapchat: Snapchat (29 percent) is the app parents are most concerned about, much more than Facebook (16 percent). Only 6 percent of parents are nervous about Instagram. Some parents aren't nervous at all about the apps their teens use: One-fifth (20 percent) say no apps/websites are concerning.
Older parents feel they are less aware of what their teens are doing online: Younger parents are more likely to say that they are more aware of what their teens are doing online. Nearly two-thirds (65 percent) of parents age 18 to 34 say they are "extremely" or "very aware" of what their teens are doing online; less than half (46 percent) of parents 55 and older say the same.
Facebook and Twitter aren't cool: More than three-quarters of teens use Instagram and Snapchat (77 percent each), but just half use Facebook (49 percent) and fewer use Twitter (42 percent).
Parents follow their kids on Facebook, but not much on other platforms: A large majority of teens who use Facebook (79 percent) are friends with their parents on the platform. Fewer of those who use Instagram, Snapchat, or Twitter follow or are friends with their parents on those platforms (46 percent, 27 percent, and 18 percent, respectively).
"Cash For Kids" 12-Hour Emergency Radiothon for Shriner's Hospital
ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com), November 19, 2017 - New Country 92.3's and 106.5 The Arch's "Cash For Kids" 12-Hour Emergency Radiothon on Friday, November 17th raised more than $32,900 for the St. Louis Shriner's Hospital For Children.
After the warehouse storing toys and blankets for the upcoming Shriner's Christmas Party was destroyed by a massive fire on Wednesday, the Hubbard Radio St. Louis stations wanted to ensure that the 1,500 children invited to the December 10th event had the happy holiday that the Shriners had planned.
The combined stations' goal was initially to raise $10,000 between 6:00 am and 6:00 pm on Friday, November 17. Listeners and supporting businesses came through by donating that goal times three. The campaign surpassed its initial goal within 90 minutes thanks to a $5,000 donation from James Hawkins of Golden Oak Lending.
Program director Scott Roddy says, "Both the New Country 92.3 Home Team and on-air Arch Allies are overwhelmed and humbled by the generosity of our followers. The bi-state is a kind, loving community. We hope that the kids at the Shriner's Hospital for Children will have a phenomenal Christmas and the heroic Shriner's have less to worry about."
