The Y Challenger program for children and young adults with special needs shines as an example of how participating in healthy activities can result in not only improved physical fitness but also personal growth, fun and friendships. Individuals 4-30 years of age with physical, developmental and intellectual disabilities have the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive through recreational and social opportunities.






Local sports celebrities will challenge their sense of style as they walk the runway to benefit the YMCA of Greater Kansas City’s Challenger program on Saturday, April 25, 2015. Current and former players from your favorite local teams will leave their jerseys at home in favor of the latest fashions during this fun evening that includes dinner, the fashion show, live and silent auction, and live music.
