Each year since 2006, News Channel 3 Meteorologist, Jim Jaggers, rides his bicycle 333 miles across the Mid-South raising money for Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital. Since its inception, Go Jim Go has raised more than $1 Million for the children of Le Bonheur. In 2013, the Mid-South helped us raise more money than ever, totaling $280,000; a record breaking year! Thank you to all of the WREG News Channel 3 viewers as well as Go Jim Go sponsors who made this possible!
The planning of Go Jim Go begins nearly a year in advance and involves multiple volunteers as well as employees of WREG News Channel 3 and Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital. On this page you can see pictures as well as video from our most recent ride. This will give you a glimpse of the schools, businesses and volunteers which make Go Jim Go possible.
The 2014 ride will take place September 24 – October 1, 2014. To get involved as a sponsor or fundraising school / business please e-mail Antoinette Katoe, Special Projects Coordinator, at Antoinette.Katoe@WREG.com.
