Sporting and The Victory Project team up to Kick Childhood Cancer

During Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, Sporting Kansas City has made a team-wide effort to Kick Childhood Cancer.

Sunday’s 1-0 victory over Minnesota United FC served as the annual Kick Childhood Cancer match at Children’s Mercy Park, headlining a number of initiatives led by Sporting Kansas City and The Victory Project—the club’s foundation dedicated to helping children and families affected by cancer—during the month of September.

In the lead-up to the match, Sporting and The Victory Project welcomed Easton—a cancer survivor and third grader from Hoyt, Kansas—to training at Compass Minerals National Performance Center. A soccer player himself, Easton completed his final chemotherapy treatment last Friday.
