Variety Children’s Charity is this year’s benefactor for the Royals Charities’ 5k, and we’re ecstatic about it. The annual 5k takes place at Kauffman Stadium, going around The K and Arrowhead complexes, and ending around the track down on the baseball field. This year our focus is teamwork, and the fact that success is so much sweeter when you have a group to share it with.
As you know, Variety is a volunteer-driven organization committed to improving the lives of children with special needs. Variety provides these children with developmental disabilities the adaptive equipment and opportunities needed for activity and inclusion within our community. If you are passionate about helping children with special needs and bettering their lives, this is the race for you. So round up a team and head out to Kauffman Stadium on August 2nd to run in the Royals Charities 5k. We’re excited about the opportunity to #RunRoyal, for kids who can’t.
Join a Team
Whether you have your own team or just want to run solo, we want you to come walk or run for kids who can’t. We’re encouraging everyone to form teams of 10 and come out and run in support of this great cause. Don’t have a team, but still want to share your successes? You can also join Team Variety, who are running for “Spotlight Kids.”
One of our Spotlight Kids is Bryce. He is 7 years old and has Achondroplasia (also known as Dwarfism). The long bones in Bryce’s body are very short, and this causes him not to grow to average height. He may not be tall, but you better believe that he doesn’t let that stop him! Bryce is a strong, caring and passionate sports fan. He loves to support his Variety Buddies and loves being included. As you can tell, he loves the Royals and just being outside and active. Through the Royals Charities 5k race, you can run or walk for one of our inspiring kids like Bryce. Help him feel included and give him a chance to play just like all of the other kids by helping us raise money in the Royals Charities 5k.
