Buffalo Broadcasters hold seventh annual 5K race

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — A charity race hosted by the Buffalo Broadcaster’s Association drew about 300 runners and walkers.

Those participants supported the charity of choice — the Family Help Center — but also helped to preserve old news film and video which is rapidly disintegrating.

“Our project is to get them digitized so nobody loses anything, and we use that video to make it available for historical purposes,” Steve Reska, vice president of the Buffalo Broadcasters Association, said.

The two winners of the race were Michael Rizzo and Catherine Sokal, who came in with times of 18:11 and 22:39 respectively.
