Midwest Family Broadcasting’s WIRX-FM, Rock 107 in Benton Harbor, has chipped in to help promote mental health in southwest Michigan.
On December 20, Rock 107 Morning Host Brock Havens stopped by MI Journey in Benton Harbor to drop off a check for $2,400 to help run MI JOURNEY programs for those in Southwest Michigan who are struggling with mental illness.
“It’s going to help with our recovery programming because one thing that’s unique about MI JOURNEY is that all staff have been there, have had serious mental illness and have gotten better,” said MI JOURNEY Executive Director Anna-Magdalena Christianson. “So we know what it’s like to be there, what it’s like to get better, and we’re kind of like guides.”
WIRX raised the money for MI Journey with its 3 Day Ride and Bike Bash this year.
