Why We Dye The Fountain

  • 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’s famous.
    • People from all over come to shop at the Country Club Plaza. The Plaza hosts 150 shops and dozens of fine restaurants year round. 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.
