KARM events fund ministry needs and give back to the community.

Events at KARM

Throughout the year, KARM hosts several events to help fund ministry needs. KARM receives no federal, state, city or United Way funding and, therefore, is dependent upon the generosity of donors and supporters to help us care for those we serve.

Other KARM events are our community “give back” opportunities, where we serve the broader East Tennessee community.

Dragon Boat Festival is a fun, family-friendly event where dedicated participants and sponsors raise money to support homeless men, women and children in our community. As the largest dragon boat event in East Tennessee, it’s an amazing experience and is a fantastic opportunity for your company, church, friends and family to come together and raise important funds to help the most vulnerable in our area while building camaraderie and having fun. Each registrant receives a fundraising page to personalize, where their supporters can make contributions toward the paddler’s and/or team’s goal.

Radiothon

Thank you to everyone who gave to and volunteered at the 2019 Restoring Lives Radiothon hosted by Cumulus Media! Because of you, we were able to raise more than $44,000 to help continue our mission “to rescue the poor and needy of the Knox area by providing recovery services in Jesus’ name.”

Check back soon for information about the 2020 Radiothon!
