104.9 the River and Schoedinger’s The Extra Mile

Kelli gives her spare time volunteering at a local cancer hospital, giving all she has to create smiles. Scott is a high-school principal who collected Christmas Gifts for students who might go without and took in a foreign exchange student with no where to go. Eugene spent countless hours volunteering at a local organization that provides life-skills and jobs to young men in desperate need…

Like these three, who do you know who’s doing amazing things in our community, big or small?

The Extra Mile is back for another year and planning to be bigger than ever. Our goal is to recognize and REWARD amazing people who are doing amazing things for our community or for others – something that is very important both to The River and to our friends at Schoedinger Funeral and Cremation Services.

We need your help finding people who are making a difference. Does that description bring someone to your mind? Tell us their story below – and they could be the next person we pick to honor! We’ll share their story on this page and surprise them with a gift to thank them for all they have given to those around them.
