The 2015 Waddell & Reed Kansas City Marathon is committed to environmentally friendly practices. Through the Council for Responsible Sport (CRS), the Greater Kansas City Sports Commission & Foundation and the participants and volunteers of the Waddell & Reed Kansas City Marathon with Ivy Funds are committed to reducing the environmental impact of the event on the Kansas City community.
With the increased environmental challenges in the world, the Kansas City full marathon, half marathon, team relay, and 5K seeks to reduce its environmental impact as it continues to grow in different ways each year.
The Waddell & Reed Kansas City Marathon with Ivy Funds is pleased to be in the third year of sustainability efforts. Led by guidelines set by the Council for Responsible Sport, the following is a list of our goals and initiatives:
The mission of the Council for Responsible Sport is to provide objective, independent verification of the socially and environmentally responsible work event organizers are doing, and to actively support event organizers who strive to make a difference in their communities. The Council for Responsible Sport is an Oregon-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
