Since its founding in 2013, The Victory Project has united Sporting players, fans and staff in the battle against childhood cancer. In addition to raising funds that address specific needs of children undergoing cancer treatment, the organization has shared incredible memories with over 150 Victory Project Honorees — special guests affected by cancer who are invited to Children’s Mercy Park alongside their families for an unforgettable experience at every Sporting home match.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, The Victory Project and Sporting Kansas City have also united with community partners to launch Sporting Serves, a philanthropic initiative that provides relief to individuals and families across the metropolitan area.
