Sporting Kansas City, in conjunction with MLS W.O.R.K.S., along with Teva Neurosciences, Cerner Corporation and the Pepsi Refresh Project, will help revamp the Wyandotte County Boys & Girls Club and bring soccer programming to the Boys & Girls Club for the first time in its history.
Beginning today, the Boys and Girls Club will undergo a rehab of its Teen Center, which will include installation of computer workstations, Xbox Kinect machines as well as the donation of essential soccer equipment such as goals and proper attire needed for participation.
