KC Marathon


Over the last month, Alpha Phi Omega has certainly been busy helping Kansas City.

The UMKC service group has fed the homeless, picked produce for food pantries, helped operate children parties, assisted major charity fundraisers and more. Ten events with 10 different area charities is an unbelievable rate of volunteer service, and they’ve done it all in just five weeks.

Thanks to their efforts, including the 2014 KC Marathon pictured below, and all the contributions from our past volunteers, we have now surpassed 1,000 volunteer service hours. In total, we have helped 29 charities by providing 356 volunteers and amassing 1,026 service hours in the process.

And we are just getting started. Join the movement today — help us help others right here in Kansas City.


Twelve-thousand runners. That’s how many participants the 2013 Waddell & Reed Kansas City Marathon with Ivy Funds is expecting this year. To serve the masses, the race directors are in need of 1,800 volunteers, which brings us to this important message — we need your help.

The Call – Kansas City has signed up to provide more than 40 helpers for this year’s races, which is scheduled for Oct. 19. Not much time, we know. But we are confident that we can fulfill this quota and be a service to not only our city, but more importantly, the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society — this year’s charity benefactor.

The LLS is the world’s largest voluntary health agency dedicated to blood cancer and funds lifesaving blood cancer research around the world while providing free information and support services.

So, contact us as soon as possible if you can help — TheCallKC@gmail.com. The jobs range from course monitors to aid stations and we have numerous shifts throughout that Saturday morning that need filling.

Come help us help others and get involved today.
