2018 Thrive Nominee Broderick Crawford
From our friends at Greater Kansas City LISC:
Join us on October 11th at Thrive as Broderick Crawford with NBC Community Development Corporation and six other honorees are recognized for their contributions to community transformation. Seven amazing award winners, live performances, locally-sourced food and drinks, and a room full of leaders passionate about transforming Kansas City’s urban core.
Broderick Crawford has devoted the majority of his life as a champion for his beloved Northeast KCK community – the neighborhoods that gave him his start and where he still calls home. In addition to serving as Executive Director of the New Bethel Church Community Development Corporation, he also works tirelessly as Project Lead for Jersey Creek Trail Renovation and Expansion Project. Jersey Creek runs from 5th Street along Parallel to 18th Street and includes Heathwood Park Ball Diamond, Spray Park, Mac's & Westheight Park. Completion of this project will benefit the area in many such as: equipping the Sumner High School track and baseball teams with a convenient place to practice; providing a safer place for community residents and five local churches to engage in fitness and fun; and reestablishing the park and trail as a premier KCK destination.
