  • 2. The Reiman Foundation, co-founded by Denver investor Scott Reiman, contributed to fund the building of a new recreation center in Netawaka, Kansas, located some 40 miles north of Topeka in Jackson County. Built on what was formerly a vacant lot edged with barbed wire, the 30,000-square-foot recreation center will provide community residents with access to a basketball court, gymnasium, walking track, and weight room, as well as a pool. The Reiman Foundation's generous donation also went toward a physical therapy office at the facility, which was completed in 2013.
  • 3. Netawaka locals hope the new recreation center will help to revitalize the city, whose population has decreased sharply over the last 10 years. At present, its population numbers just over 140. The project, which was conceived by project manager Julie Keehn and her husband, has been completed largely by volunteers, including the town mayor.
