About Go Jim Go

Go Jim Go is an annual event that supports Le Bonheur Children's Hospital. Le Bonheur Children's Hospital is a place for hope and healing for children and their families across the Mid-South and beyond.

Why participate in Go Jim Go?

More than 500,000 children are cared for annually at Le Bonheur Children's. With the expertise of our physicians, medical team and state-of-the-art technology, Le Bonheur Children's has the ability to care for the community's sickest children. Le Bonheur is a not-for-profit hospital relying on the support of a generous community to provide the best health care to all children. Our care and services extend beyond the walls of Le Bonheur, providing many benefits to the community. Our associates dedicate hours of tutoring and reading in elementary schools, and our community outreach offers unique programs that serve more than half a million children in the region. In addition, Le Bonheur is recognized as one of the nation's "Best Children's Hospitals" by U.S News and World Report.

Participating in Go Jim Go is beneficial for students. Studies show youth who volunteer are more likely to do well in school, graduate, become responsible adults and continue being philanthropic throughout adulthood. Additionally, students who participate in community service reported feeling better about themselves and gaining respect and understanding for others. Go Jim Go is an important community program, impacting the lives of youth across the region. Participating schools have the opportunity to be visited by WREG News Channel 3 Meteorologist Jim Jaggers and his Go Jim Go team. This is an exciting event for the students and schools receive well deserved positive media attention for their support of Go Jim Go!
