Stressed and upset about the Royals offensive slump? Then get off the couch, get your running shoes on, and come out Saturday to help a good cause. Eric Hosmer and Danny Duffy will be the special guests in attendance for Noah’s Crown Town 5k this Saturday, April 29 at 7:30 a.m. in Corporate Woods in Overland Park.
The race is a family-friendly run through a flat, scenic route. Entry fees are $40 for individuals, and $35 for groups of four or more. You can find all race information here.
Proceeds go to Noah’s Bandage Project, the organization founded by Noah Wilson, the brave young Royals fan who died of cancer in 2015, but dedicated his last days to helping other children going through cancer treatments. His organization aims to raise funds for pediatric cancer research as well as provide fun bandages to lift the spirits of young patients. His efforts inspired Royals players like Danny Duffy and Eric Hosmer, who have been involved with raising funds for the organization. This year, Duffy has pledged $500 for every strikeout to go to the Project, and you can join his pledge here.
Runners are also encouraged to bring cool and fun bandages that will be collected and distributed to children’s hospitals. Come out and meet Duffy and Hos and raise money for a good cause!
