Blue's walk and song

By Molly Dreska

This past weekend, Sporting Kansas City mascot Blue was out and about in the KC community. On Saturday, Blue attended the Missouri Bank’s Pace for the Place 2.5 mile walk benefitting "The Children’s Place" in Brookside. Blue helped participants stretch and get ready for the walk and then made sure to cheer them on once it began. "The Children's Place" strives to assist young survivors of childhood traumas. Therapists, teachers, staff and volunteers associated with the program are committed to helping children recover while finding hope for their futures.

On Sunday, Blue was active again joining University of Kansas' Big Jay, University of Missouri's Truman, Kansas State University's Willie the Wildcat, Royal's Slugger and Kansas City Chief's KC Wolf at the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts for “The Orchestra Games.” The hour-long event was designed to teach children about instruments and basic music elements in conjunction with friendly competition. The show is modeled after the Olympics with all competitions showcasing a musical component, for example: "the Low Note Limbo" and the "Fast Note Dash." "The Orchestra Games" featured sing alongs to "Take Me Out to the Ballgame", "Gonna Fly Now (Rocky theme song)" and several others along with a stand for the Seventh Inning Stretch.

Blue saw lots of Major League Soccer fans repping the club with their Sporting Style. Below is a slideshow from the event:
