The Victory Project has an impactful 2016

The mission of The Victory Project is clear – to impact as many children who are battling cancer and life’s challenges as possible. This year the foundation raised a record $260,000 due to the success of the 2016 SKC OpenYoga on the PitchCelebrity Bartending and several other fundraisers which allowed them to increase programming.

With the funds raised from these events the foundation was able to impact the lives of children all over the metro. Below are a just a few of the programs executed this year:

  • Hosted third annual Red Cross Blood Drive and potentially saved over 570 lives
  • Partnered with TeamSmile to provide 300 underserved children with free dental care
  • Honored a child battling cancer during every home game and invited all previous honorees back for National Childhood Cancer Awareness Night
  • Opened nine (9) new futsal court locations and two (2) soccer fields – providing a safe place for kids to play
  • Hosted a home/away series of Special Olympics Exchange Games
  • Collected and Distributed more than $20,000 worth of gently used soccer equipment through Recycle Your Game program
  • Engaged Sporting Wives and Girlfriends and hosted two Pink Party events at Children’s Mercy Hospital
