Tricycle Derby Fundracer

A tricycle derby is a race on tricycles! We've invited ten Kearney executives... everything from a dentist to a wrestling coach to a police officer... to participate in a race for a better Kearney. At the 2023 United Way Campaign Kick Off, these local leaders will be racing on trikes (yes, the ones made for pre-schoolers) across the Pinnacle Bank parking lot for the chance to be named the ultimate victor. 

When the competition is complete, the tricycles will be donated to children in need in the Kearney area.
