MOUNT VERNON - In partnership with many local organizations, Knox DD hosted its annual 5K/1-mile walk/run on Saturday, August 12th. Every year, Knox County Board of DD selects a local organization to receive proceeds from the event.
The Teen Advisory Council (TAC), Knox County's youth-led prevention group, was honored to be selected as the beneficiary this year. A check presentation was held as Knox DD donated $5,090 to the council earlier this week. TAC has involvement from four of the six high schools in Knox County with the primary goal to prevent teen dating violence and substance use/abuse.
