Happy New Year From Variety!

Variety the Children’s Charity of Kansas City wishes all our friends and family a joyous new year. With the new year comes many goals for resolutions and hopeful thoughts. To help keep you motivated, we would like to share the story of 2013 Variety Show performer Nate Muehe.


NateOnly_Andy18thBday_10-25-12Nate is an amazing kid who never allowed obstacles to get in the way of his passion. He was born with Amniotic Band Syndrome which ended his left arm just below his elbow. Despite not having a left forearm or hand, Nate has found a love for baseball and has excelled as a pitcher. The 13-year-old from Olathe, KS pitched a perfect game back in 2011 garnering him much attention for his 60 mph pitches. Since then, he has gone on to throw out the first pitch for The Kansas City Royals, and you might have recognized him from a 2012 Summer Olympic Nike commercial. Through Nate’s hard work, dedication, and optimism he is truly an inspiration for anyone going after their goals and reaching their dreams.
