Kansas State University’s All-University Homecoming Committee has donated $9,000 to Pawnee Mental Health Services. The funds were raised from proceeds collected at the 2021 All University Homecoming Philanthropy 5K Run/Walk.

Each year the Homecoming Committee identifies a benefactor for the 5K proceeds.
