FM #247 Doug McPherson HMEA Virtual IncredABLE 5K

FM #247 = This is the Franklin Matters radio show, number 247 in the series.

This session of the radio show shares my conversation with Doug McPherson, Vice-President of Development and Public Relations for Horace Mann Education Association (HMEA). We had our conversation via conference bridge to adhere to the ‘social distancing’ requirements of this pandemic period.

In our first conversation, Doug and I talked about the preparation for the HMEA’s IncredABLE 5K scheduled for May 17, 2020. Alas, in this pandemic period, the road race, community walk, and family fun field day has been converted to a virtual event. Virtual? Yes, we talk about how you can run your 5K on a certified 5K course and send your results in to HEMA to count.

Our conversation includes the other elements of the virtual event still to occur on May 17, but all virtual, not on the fields at Dell/EMC.

The recording runs about 20 minutes, so let’s listen to my conversation with Doug


We are now producing this in collaboration with Franklin.TV and Franklin Public Radio (
