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.”
Maddox is 11 years old and has Cerebral Palsy, Duchennes Muscular Dystrophy, and Autism. This may cause Maddox to need support from a walker or a wheelchair to be mobile, but he doesn’t let that get in the way of being active. This boy is full of energy and has one sparkling personality. He is quite a social butterfly and quickly becomes everyone’s friend with his magnetic smile. By signing up for the Royals Charities 5K race you can run or walk for Maddox and other kids like him, inspire them to be their best!
