Reach for Rare: A Pickleball


Join us Sunday, September 16 at Chicken N Pickle for RareKC's inaugural fundraiser. Put your pickleball skills (or cheerleading skills) to the test for a great cause: Support RareKC’s mission to activate a change in the lives of those challenged by Rare Disease.

The day will be filled with food, fun, friendly competition, and both a silent and live auction filled with “Rare” items and experiences.

There's multiple ways to get involved: Register, Become a Sponsor, In-Kind donations for auction items, or support through a donation. Learn more about the event here.
