PROOF OF RESULTS:
We accept results on the honor system, so you can track your distance and time however you like. However, you can e-mail (email@example.com) us a photo of your watch/phone or simply tag us on social media #WCQR or #TheGooseChase. The most accurate way to do this is by using a Running GPS watch. However, there are several free smartphone apps available for iPhones and Android devices that you may be interested in. Please go to your app store and search “GPS run keeper.” (i.e., Runkeeper, Map My Run by Under Armour, Running Distance Tracker, Nike Run Club, Starve: Run, Ride, Swim, Run Tracker, Pacer Pedometer & Step Tracker, Runmeter, etc..)The average person takes between 2,000 and 2,500 walking steps per mile as counted by a pedometer, fitness band, or phone motion sensor. Running steps have a longer stride length and you may take between 1,000 and 2,000 steps per mile. A total of 10,000 steps equals 4 to 5 miles. Simply use your Fitbit, Apple watch or similar device and track your steps. If you walk between 6,000-7,500 steps, you probably have met your goal. Great job!!!
We will be recognizing the Top Male and Female for Overall, Masters, Grand Masters and Youth (10 & Under) on WCQR’s The Morning Show with Rhonda and Adam on Monday, July 6th. There will also be social media contests, which will be announced by WCQR through their social media pages and on-air.
PLEASE HAVE TIMES ENTERED BY MIDNIGHT ON JULY 4, 2020.
WCQR exists to serve our listeners in ways that will inspire them to live passionately for Jesus Christ through every song and every spoken word.
WCQR and our listeners are consistently active in our community, raising awareness as well as raising support. In January 2017, WCQR launched The Pajama Project and our listeners overwhelmingly responded to this outreach, with over 3,000 pairs of new pajamas collected and distributed to eight ministries who serve children in East Tennessee and Southwest Virginia. In 2019, our listeners surpassed that total and over 4,500 pairs of pajamas were collected for kids in need.
In 2019, WCQR partnered with Second Harvest Food Bank for the10th consecutive year and raised over $140,000 on air, which provided more than 5,600 families in our region a full Thanksgiving meal.
WCQR gives back through Community Focus– an ongoing weekly segment that highlights a local ministry in our area. Each 501c3 ministry receives an on-air campaign that runs during the week as well as a 15-minute interview and space on our website. WCQR believes in focusing on the many local ministries in our area and the unity we have in serving Jesus Christ.
In addition, WCQR wants every child and member of the Tri-Cities region covered in prayer. The daily School Prayer Zone highlights a local school to remind listeners to pray for students and staff that day – this happens each weekday morning during the school year. Our Prayer Wall is an interactive feature on our website where listeners can submit their prayer requests as well as pray for others.
