Running the Rapids: Tom McBride is One of the Young Leaders Building Community

We take our mission of building community in northern Minnesota pretty seriously here at KAXE/KBXE. It's not hard to do when community partners and organizations and leaders reach out to us about the good things they are doing to make this a better place to live.

This morning Tom McBride joined us to tell us about Running the Rapids - the 4th annual event created by a team of Itasca-area leaders who have a shared passion for seeing their community thrive. They have a goal to create an energizing event that will showcase the community and all it has to offer, while providing an opportunity for people to be active.

What events in your community make an impact? Let us know!
