TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - A Topeka volunteer was recognized Wednesday for showing compassion, availability and responsibility to boys in the capital city.
The Safe Streets Coalition and Topeka City of Character honored Jeremy Wynne as this month's Champion of Character.
Wynne not only organized the "Doxazo" sports camp and ministry for boys in the Hi-Crest neighborhood, he actually moved there so he can have more of a positive impact.
The camps allows participants to play games like basketball and dodge ball, and take part in healthy cooking classes and other lifestyle lessons.
"We want to train these kids when they're young, teach them about character, about the gospel, about Jesus so as they're older, they're able to influence their peers and their kids and their friends at their schools, in their community and in their families some day," said Jeremy Wynne, Champions of Character Honoree.
Wynee says several other churches are joining in on the camps.
