15 And The Mahomies Announces Grant For Variety KC PlaygroundPublished October 15, 2019
Kansas City, MO (October 15, 2019) – It was announced today the 15 and the Mahomies Foundation has provided a grant to Variety KC to support their goal of creating a playground that provides access and stimulation to all kids in Kansas City, regardless of physical or mental disabilities. The playground will be complete with ramps, safe surfaces and music and located adjacent to Children’s Mercy Hospital.
“Variety KC strives to remove mobility barriers by providing the necessary equipment for children right here in Kansas City to feel included. I am excited we are able to support this great cause,” said Patrick Mahomes.
“Many Variety Kids use mobility devices or are non-verbal and too often they are benched on the sidelines and not invited to play. That’s why this gift from 15 and the Mahomies means so much! This gift has boosted the confidence of every Variety Kid. Having 15 and the Mahomies supporting them makes them the COOL kids and they are so proud of this association. Thank you 15 and the Mahomies for making the inclusion of all kids possible,” said Deborah Wiebrecht Executive Director of Variety KC.
