Exchange Club honors unsung heroes

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A couple of unsung heroes were honored Friday night in Albany.

The Exchange Club honored Rick and Jane Runge with the club's 66th annual Book of Golden Deeds Award.

The award honors people for their outstanding community service that often goes unnoticed.

"There are so many people that do so many things that are selfless, that help and improve our community and help and improve their corner of the world, and I think it's very important to take the time to recognize those people," says

The Runges lead the International Ministry at Byne Memorial Baptist Church.

They established a Vietnamese church service at Byne teach English as a second language courses, and help many international visitors and residents with everything from tutoring to helping pay for medical bills
