Six years ago, Greg and Lois Hodgers stopped at a local St. Jude’s Ranch while on their way to the lake, it was this visit that started the Wake the World movement. They decided that they would start an organization to provide these opportunities to these children to experience activities they might not be able to experience without their help. http://waketheworld.org
