CKXU Presents: FUNdrive 2017 "MORE THAN RADIO"  

The theme of this year's FUNdrive is "More Than Radio," chosen to reflect CKXU's diverse involvement in the Lethbridge and Southern Alberta community.

CKXU's mission is to showcase and promote cultural diversity in Southern Alberta. The team at CKXU creates and fosters an inclusive arts community that is accessible to everyone!

CKXU's goal for this year's FUNdrive is to raise $30,000. All money raised will be used to improve the station's website, develop a cutting-edge digital music cataloging system, replace equipment in both broadcasting booths, and fund special programming and community development projects.
