Wow. We’re so blown away by what God did through YOU this week during KLRC’s Fall Fundraiser! If you haven’t heard, we ended just before 9:00am on Thursday – a full 9 hours ahead of schedule! As of Thursday afternoon, your pledges totaled $326,126.
It’s Day 2 of fundraising and we have so much to celebrate already! So many great volunteers, so many great stories, and a really encouraging response all day long!

“Cherish every moment. Live every day to the fullest. Laugh daily. ” I could probably conclude this post with just those three wise statements recently shared with us by Renae. But to fully understand the significance of those words, you need to know more about her story.
This morning 8 year old Emma was listening to KLRC when she heard that Jack had called to give $10 of his birthday money. Emma and her brother Paxton went to mom and said, “We want to give too!” A little bit later Emma, her mom, and her brothers brought their giving jars to KLRC.
