Challenge Your Fashion

Challenge Your Fashion 2019 - Fashion Show
Challenger Athlete Abby and Co-Emcee Rex Hudler

Challenge Your Fashion is an incredible annual tradition featuring current and former players from your favorite local teams walking the runway with YMCA Challenger athletes and buddies.

The 12th annual Challenge Your Fashion event on Saturday, January 26, 20189 was filled with fun, fashion and great times. The event raised more than $140,000 for the YMCA of Greater Kansas City’s Challenger program, which helps children and young adults with diverse abilities to gain strength, confidence, friendship, and more. View our event recap for more details about this great night for a great cause.
