(Kansas City, Mo.) – TREK’s Founders, Kimberly and Trent Robinett, was selected as the 2019 Blue River Watershed Association (BRWA) Ripple Effect Award recipient. They will receive their award at the November 1, 2019 BRWA Water Ball event.

Recipients of the Ripple Effect Award receive a royal blue water drop award that is layered and surrounded by crystal clear glass symbolizing significant recognition and sacrifice in restoring watersheds. Each award is individually hand crafted, with no two awards identical in size, weight, shape or color, just like the award recipients who will receive this award each year.
