Kim became a HeartLight Member in September 2001.

Why did you join HeartLight?

I came to a couple of practices after my husband joined the chorus and found out about the HeartLight group. Even though we are a straight couple, I felt real acceptance there and wanted to learn more about how to support the mission of the chorus. I loved getting to know the members and we have made some great, lasting friendships through this group. I’m not a religious person, but I believe we were led to join this group, and it has made a difference in our lives over the last twenty years.

What song makes you happy?

A song that makes me happy is Everything Possible. I know that seems odd because I most often hear it at funerals, but it makes me happy because it talks about how love lasts long after we are gone. I love that legacy.

What are you looking forward to after the pandemic?

I like my home but I’m ready to get out of here! I look forward to seeing family and chorus members and getting some HUGS!! I really miss my sister and I’m ready to go on a quilting retreat!

Team HMCKC Remembers & Raises Money for AIDS Walk KC

HMCKC walked in the first AIDS Walk KC 33 years ago and since then we have raised tens of thousands of dollars for those in the Kansas City Area living with HIV.

Randy Hite is one HMCKC member who is walking to remember former members. “I’ll be walking with my team to remember those friends of mine that I’ve lost to AIDS. One of those friends was Robert Busby. He was in the chorus and he was a dancer and we were buddies and he would love to know that his name is on one of the memorial banners that the chorus will display during the walk. So, I walked to remember Robert and all my other friends.”

Team HMCKC is close to reaching its goal of $8,400 for the 2021 AIDS Walk KC. You can still donate to the Team’s fundraiser by June 30, 2021. Click here.
