Hello everyone! My name is Erin Lawless and I work in Community Relations for the Kansas City Wizards. Unfortunately, I’m not very blog savvy, and this post took me a while to figure out. I will try to check in here and keep you all up to date with info and pictures from the different events the players are doing throughout the season.
Currently, we are gearing up for the season and working on introducing new programs to the Kansas City community. We are finishing up the details of a math program that we would like to integrate into schools all over the Metro. So make sure your child’s classroom gets signed up.
Recently, Kevin Hartman joined Dwayne De Rosario, Diego Gutierrez, and Jose Luis Burciaga in Orlando, Florida for an MLS WORKS event fundraiser for their Nothing But Nets campaign, which works to prevent the spread of malaria by sending bed nets to countries affected by the disease. This event brought over 6,000 budding soccer stars to Disney’s Wide World of Sports to compete in the Kick It 3v3 World Championship and to watch the players put on a skills demo. They spoke to the crowd, letting them know that everyone can make a difference. Here is a picture from the event. Doesn’t Kevin represent KC so well!
