UNK is proud to be a school that gives back to the community and beyond. Be a part of the giving culture by running for “something”. Run for your favorite charity, your favorite cause or someone special. Dress up to raise awareness for your cause, run or walk the race, and then get freee Jimmy Johns (JJ) after the race. After the race, check-out all the kearney has to offer in service organizations. This is the way to find an organization that fits you.
