Jessi raises over $1,000 for kids in NEA

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Region 8's Jessi Turnure has raised over $1,000 for the Northeast Arkansas Children's Advocacy Center. 

Every child with the NEACAC takes a "Leap of Faith" to tell his or her story of abuse so Jessi took a "Leap of Faith" for them, by literally jumping out of a plane.

Jessi raised a grand total of $1,035 just before the deadline.

The money raised will provide complete NEACAC services for one child and guarantee no child will ever pay for the center's services.  

Jessi jumped out of a perfectly good airplane on Saturday and stuck the landing. For more photos of her experience go to her Facebook page
