Thank you to everyone who participated in the 8th Annual Challenge Your Fashion event! A special thank you goes to our generous sponsors


Challenge Your Fashion is an annual tradition that benefits the YMCA of Greater Kansas City's Challenger Program for kids with special needs. Current and former athletes from your favorite local teams leave their jerseys at home in favor of the latest fashions during this fun evening that includes dinner, live and silent auctions, a fashion show featuring styles from Dillard’s, and music.


2015 models included:

  • Chiefs offensive lineman Eric Kush, Chiefs linebacker Derrick Johnson, current and former Chiefs players, and Chiefs cheerleaders;
  • USA World Team Gold Medal Gymnast Maddie Desch;
  • Shea Groom and Katelyn Rowland from professional women’s soccer team FC Kansas City;
  • And YMCA Challenger athletes.

Emcees for the 2015 event were Jadiann Thompson, 41 Action News Anchor, and Steven St. John, host of Sports Radio 810’s “The Border Patrol.” 

Proceeds from this event will expand the Fred and Shirley Pryor YMCA Challenger Sports Complex, an inclusive multi-sport facility specially designed to remove barriers for kids using wheelchairs and walkers.

Special thanks to our 2015 Hall of Fame Sponsor, Humana!
