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.”
Meet Brothers Noah & Kane
Today we have two spotlight kids and they are brothers! Noah & Kane are total sports nuts who try and participate in every activity they can! They are both in wheelchairs, but that does not stop them or their family from participating in baseball, soap-box derby racing and soccer. They are setting an example of inclusion by being active in sports and Variety activities. Variety helped Noah and Kane’s family purchase motorized wheelchairs for each of the boys and an adaptive van so their whole family can do things together. These boys are more than just brothers, they are best friends. Sign up today for the Royals Charities 5K race and you can run or walk in honor of this unstoppable duo!
