Audacy Denver Collects and Distributes over 500 Pairs of Sneakers to Local Kids Through KS107.5’s Inaugural “Beats & Sneaks” Kids Sneaker Drive
Audacy Denver collected and distributed over 500 pairs of kid’s sneakers in partnership with Soles4Souls and the Denver Dream Center in KS107.5’s inaugural “Beats and Sneaks.”
“Beats and Sneaks” was a summer-long collection drive, running June 19 through August 12, in partnership with The Sharpest Rides and Culture Street. The campaign culminated with a distribution event at the Aztlan Recreation Center, where over 500 kids received a new pair of sneakers and enjoyed games, contests and lunch on location. Custom artist sneakers for Latto and Cardi B were created by local artist Breanna Berry and put up for auction to help contribute to the campaign.
“This is the connection between radio and community engagement…getting out and connecting with our listeners and showing them that we care about our community,” said DJ Buck, Regional Vice President of Rhythmic, Audacy; Brand Manager, KS107.5.”
