Hemophilia Walk

Sara Louie, the club president, served as the volunteer coordinator for the walk. The walk attracted thousands of supporters and surpassed its goal of raising $300,000 to fund research and awareness for hemophilia.

New York District Circle K and Key Clubbers came together to participate and volunteer at the walk, and made a statement as we helped crowd Riverside Park.

Queens Family Day of Service

On July 6, St. John’s University Circle K hosted a day of service at Kissena Corridor Park. They invited members from a soon-to-be-chartered Aktion Club, the Rosedale-Laurelton Kiwanis Club, other CKI clubs, and various Key Clubs in New York City.

Nearly 50 members showed up to the event, where they shoveled and placed mulch around nearly all the trees in the park. They cleaned the area and picked up branches, which happened to be the 2015 CKI Kiwanis One Day initiative: #BranchesWithBranches.
