Desoto County welcomes Go Jim Go on third day of 2017 ride

DESOTO COUNTY, Tenn. — Go Jim Go’s 2017 ride for Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital has moved to Desoto County, Miss.  Somehow some of the very small communities and schools we visit there always seem to raise huge amounts of money.  Case in point, Lewisburg, where students and Lewisburg Primary and Elementary Schools raised more than $19,000 for Le Bonheur!

If you would like to help Le Bonheur yourself, click here to visit our donation page.

All day long, we’ll be posting videos from schools and other stops along with the way.  You can see them first on the Go Jim Go Facebook page.  Be sure and follow that page to get all the updates from this year’s ride, including behind the scenes photos and videos you won’t see anywhere else!

This page may take a moment to load all the embedded videos, so please be patient!

Go Jim Go is a six 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.

Anything that matters to children, matters to Le Bonheur. Everything we do gives each child they serve a chance to enjoy a healthier and safer childhood.

Recognized among the nation’s “Best Children’s Hospitals” by U.S. News & World Report for seven consecutive years, Le Bonheur is always on the side of children, advocating on their behalf so it can provide them with the care they need.  They are a Magnet-designated facility, the ultimate credential for high-quality patient care.

It’s been that way since they opened in 1952.  They’ve mattered to children every day since.  In fact, on opening day, the front door key was tied to a balloon which was then released, signifying that the Le Bonheur would never be closed to the children and families of the Mid-South.

From the ordinary bumps and sniffles of childhood to its most life-altering extremes, Le Bonheur Children’s is prepared for whatever a child’s life might throw at them.
