Sporting KC Wears Blue for Child Abuse Prevention

By Alice Schroeder

April is Child Abuse Prevention Month. All across the country, people will join together to Wear Blue to support and raise awareness of child abuse prevention. In Kansas City, nine non-profit agencies are working together to raise awareness about what to look for and how YOU can help. For more information, visit www.preventchildabusekc.org.

Sporting Kansas City is partnering with these agencies to raise awareness at the Sporting KC vs. Portland Timbers game on April 27 at Sporting Park. Guests will be greeted at the entrances to the stadium by Pinwheel Gardens.  Pinwheels are the national symbol for Prevent Child Abuse America. Guests are free to take a pinwheel from the garden and bring it into the game. Kansas Children’s Service League, the Kansas Chapter of Prevent Child Abuse America, will also be hosting a 120th Anniversary Tailgate before the game. For more information, you can contact Monica Enloe at menloe@kcsl.org.
