Run For Kids Who Can’t: Catie

If you believe every kid should be active, be social, and belong – please donate today


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.

About Variety

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.”

Meet Catie

Catie is a beautiful 7 year old who has Cerebral Palsy and movement disorders. She has decreased muscle tone and is only able to be mobile with a walker and supporting orthotics. Even with Cerebal Palsy, nothing seems to slow Catie down. Catie is an affectionate, loving and one-of-a-kind girl who absolutely loves all of her Variety friends. She always wants to help and include other kids just like her. She has so much heart for a 7 year-old. Sign up today for the Royals Charities 5K race and you can run or walk in honor of this inspiring little girl!
