Why is the J.C. Nichols Fountain Orange?

We get this a lot.

There are many reason why we dye the most famous fountain in Kansas City Orange. Here are just a few:

  • It helps us raise awareness of stroke in young people.
    • It’s bright.
    • It’s loud.
    • It’s the center piece of Kansas City.
  • It helps us help other organizations.
    • Part of what we do is invite other organizations to have booths at the fountain. That’s why we call it a party! 
  • It’s famous.
    • People from all over come to shop at the Country Club Plaza. The bright orange famous J.C. Nichols fountain is hard to miss just east of all the great shops and restaurants. When people come see why it’s orange, we get to raise awareness of stroke in young people. 
  • It helps us build communities of young stroke survivors.
    • Many young stroke survivors in our community first met at the orange J.C. Fountain.
