One of KNR’s charitable efforts is their annual Don’t Text and Drive Scholarship. The purpose of this annual event is to raise awareness of the dangers of distracted driving. Participants must create a plan to convince young adults to end distracted driving. The winner is awarded a $5,000 scholarship.
In another act of charity KNR treated 12 local children to a shopping spree. The children were given the chance to buy as much summer clothing as they needed. This event was important to KNR because they were able to provide for the kids as well as help them to feel good about themselves. Big Brothers, Big Sisters of Central Ohio attended this event as well.
Another one of KNR’s charitable endeavors is their participation in the annual Polar Bear Jump. Participants of this event take a dive into the freezing cold lake water.
