Kansas City Current Players Select #ZeroReasonsWhy as the Beneficiary of Challenge Cup Kit Auction

“I’m grateful that our team chose to support #ZeroReasonsWhy,” said KC Current defender Maddie Nolf. “This cause is close to my heart. My family and I lost our cousin last year to mental illness. It has opened my eyes and heart to see how many families and individuals are fighting and struggling against mental health. I desire for light to shine in this dark space and help those who are suffering with mental health issues. I am so glad our team can help support this cause.”  

Following the 2022 Challenge Cup, each Current player will autograph her respective white kit before being awarded to the top bidder.  

#ZeroReasonsWhy is driven by teen activists who want to see mental health conversations elevated and the suicide rate amongst their peers reduced. The name #ZeroReasonsWhy does not suggest there are zero reasons why a teen should struggle with mental health. Instead, there are zero reasons why we can’t equip, empower, discuss, educate, remove stigma and come together as a community to advocate for teen mental wellness. The campaign amplifies the voices of teenagers and encourages communities to come together as a whole to see real change.  

“Mental health is an incredibly important topic that we need to continue to amplify, especially among teens and young adults,” said Amber Cox, COO of the KC Current. “We are thrilled to continue supporting the work of #ZeroReasonsWhy through this auction and via the impact of our players lending their voices to this vital conversation.”   

Last season, the Kansas City Current launched their Behavioral Health platform in collaboration with founding partner Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas City. Through combined efforts, the partnership is working to improve behavioral health across the region. Plans for a more comprehensive Behavioral Health platform, that includes a website and educational resources, will be launched in early May. 

The Kansas City Current are undefeated on the 2022 season and return home to play at Children’s Mercy Park on April 2. Tickets for home matches are available at https://www.kansascitycurrent.com/tickets.
