Special "Katie" Correspondent Cameron Hughes Travels To Denver, Detroit, New York, Phoenix and Washington, D.C. To Involve and Engage Communities

"Katie Challenge for Change" is a weeklong programming event airing the week of NOVEMBER 18-22, 2013, in which the show will travel to five cities across the country and challenge communities to create positive changes, both big and small. With the help of Katie's special correspondent Cameron Hughes, the show partners with local charities in Denver, Detroit, New York, Phoenix and Washington, D.C. with one mission in mind -- to inspire, involve and engage communities to help make a difference in their hometowns.

The "Katie Challenge For Change" air schedule:

· Monday, November 18 - Phoenix, Arizona

· Tuesday, November 19 - Denver, Colorado

· Wednesday, November 20 - Detroit, Michigan

· Thursday, November 21 - Washington, D.C.

· Friday, November 22 - New York, New York

On Monday, November 18, the show will collaborate with the world's first food bank based in Phoenix, St. Mary's Food Bank Alliance, which was recently struck hard by the government shutdown and food stamp cutbacks, to try to obtain 1 million meals to help the community make it through the winter.

On Tuesday, November 19, "Katie Challenge For Change" will be in Denver, joining forces with several local troops from The Girl Scouts of America to assist those affected by the devastating floods that hit the region in September. The show and the Girl Scouts partner with Coats for Colorado to help by aiming to collect 500,000 winter coats at an Avalanche hockey game and other locations throughout Denver.

Next stop is Detroit on Wednesday, November 20 where the show teams up with Alternatives for Girls, encouraging the community to come together to adopt one child's Christmas list for $30.00 and/or make a donation with a goal to fulfill 200 lists.

On Thursday, November 21, "Katie Challenge for Change" makes its second to last stop in Washington, D.C., where the community is urged to enrich the lives of inner city youth by making a donation of art supplies or donate any dollar amount in the attempt to stock the shelves at the Life Pieces To Masterpieces organization for a full year.

On Friday, November 22, "Katie Challenge for Change" completes its mission to challenge communities in New York City, where participants are persuaded to make the effort to collect 1,000 turkeys in a community-wide "Turkey Crawl" organized throughout NYC for collaborating organization, The River Fund.

"Katie" airs across the country in national syndication. Check your local listings for time and channel or go to www.KatieCouric.com.
