Sporting Park to host 2013 Walk MS

Sporting Park is proud to host the 2013 Greater Kansas City Walk MS on Saturday, April 27. Over 2,500 individuals are expected to participate in the event, which will feature one-, three- and six-mile routes that are fully accessible for people of all abilities.

“We’re really excited to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Walk MS with the announcement of our partnership with Sporting Park,” Allison Ihm, senior manager Walk MS said, “Walk MS is more than a fundraising event; it is a celebration of our community and our mission. We are ecstatic for the opportunity to raise awareness about MS and make more connections in our community through one large event in Kansas City.”

Walk MS participants can walk as an individual or part of a team, and the event also encourages opportunities to volunteer, fund raise and/or donate. Registration is free and takes place online at or by calling 1-800-344-4867. You can also RSVP on Facebook.

Everyone who registers to participate in Walk MS will have the opportunity to purchase discounted tickets for Sporting Kansas City's match later that day against the Portland Timbers at 7:30 p.m. CT. The deadline to purchase your Sporting KC seats is April 15 and tickets are limited. Contact Darin Canova at 913-387-3443 to take advantage of the Walk MS offer.
