Friday was a busy day for Aliy with local media spots to promote the "Lead On!" initiative she is involved in with Matson and the Alaska Network on Domestic Violence & Sexual Assault (ANDVSA).
In the morning Aliy visited local TV station KTVA for a couple of spots to talk about the initiative. First up was a live segment with Carmen Lowry, Executive Director, ANDVSA on KTVA's morning show Daybreak.
Mickey and I stayed in the Green Room to watch as it aired; a first for both of us.

After that, Aliy recorded an interview with Rhonda McBride for the Frontiers show that airs Sunday afternoon and evening (click on picture below to link).
Then, later in the afternoon she and Kenny Gill, Matson Vice President - Alaska were live on the Dave Stieren Radio Show on KFQD to discuss the initiative.
Back at the hotel KTUU caught up with her (click photo below for link) and I understand the ADN have a story coming up.
It has been a great opportunity for Aliy to talk about the Lead On partnership she has developed with Matson and ANDVSA. To find out more and how to donate go to andvsa.org. All moneys donated during March, April and May will go towards helping children from the villages along the Iditarod Trail attend the Lead On! Conference in November.
