Kiwanis is a fellowship united in service to improve the
lives of children in our community and throughout the world. Outer Banks Kiwanis
Club’s community service projects focus on the health and education of children
in Dare County. We raise funds to provide college scholarships for local
students, and for research to accelerate the cures for cancer in children. The
club partners with the North Banks Rotary Club to hold the Nags Head Woods 5K, as well as the 1-Mile Family Fun Run in May.
