"Go Jim Go!" a Huge Success!

"Go Jim Go!" is a 6-day telethon on wheels featuring Jim Jaggers, WREG News Channel 3 meteorologist. Jim and the Go Jim Go Cycling Team ride 333 miles throughout the region raising money for Le Bonheur Children's Hospital. Since its inception, "Go Jim Go!" has raised more than $2 million for Le Bonheur. Our Beta Clubs (Elementary Beta, Jr. Beta, & Sr. Beta) sponsored "Go Jim Go!" for RCA this year. Jim and his cycling team rode to RCA on October 3rd to accept our donation: we raised a total of $1,527.30 for Le Bonheur! LeBonheur is a true gem in the Mid-south community, and RCA is honored to help it continue to serve all children regardless of ability to pay. Thank you to all who contributed to this worthy cause!
