“WMRC changed my life forever! A few years back the folks at WMRC started a fitness program called Get Fit For Life.  I was selected to participate, and that’s when my life began to change forever.  I found myself, made lifelong friends, ran the Rugged Maniac and became a better person all because of a local radio station…WMRC!!!!


I can never repay them for all they have done for me, my family and my community. I am forever thankful for WMRC, you truly changed my life!!!”
