KCCP Supports Kylie’s Crusaders

On September 27th, members of KCCP gathered in Garden City, Missouri, to support Kylie’s Crusaders in their annual fall festival parade.  Kylie’s Crusaders is a group of folks whose aim is to spread awareness and encourage newborn screenings for Pompe disease.  Kylie’s Crusaders all wear green, so we brought out some green characters to join in the parade!  Green Arrow and a couple of Green Lanterns attended, as well as Batman (who had a custom green bat symbol) and one of the Kansas City Ghostbusters.

From wikipedia: “Glycogen storage disease type II (also called Pompe disease) is an autosomal recessive metabolic disorder[1] which damages muscle and nerve cells throughout the body. It is caused by an accumulation of glycogen in the lysosome due to deficiency of the lysosomal acid alpha-glucosidase enzyme.”
