Chenoweth booked for KC's All-Star Fun Run
KANSAS CITY -- If the MLB All-Star Game Charity 5K & Fun Run has a seventh-inning stretch, organizers won't have to look too far to find someone to sing "Take Me Out to the Ball Game."

Award-winning actress and singer Kristin Chenoweth will join former Royals All-Stars George Brett and Mike Sweeney at the event, which takes place Sunday, July 8, in downtown Kansas City. The Emmy and Tony award winner is a Stand Up to Cancer ambassador, and currently stars in the ABC series "GCB."

Chenoweth will cheer on participants and help begin the event, which benefits the Prostate Cancer Foundation, Stand Up to Cancer and the greater Kansas City affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure, with Major League Baseball donating 100 percent of net profits to the organizations.

"My mom is a breast cancer survivor, and I'm inspired by her every day," Chenoweth said. "Cancer is a disease that has touched far too many lives, and I am so honored to be part of the All-Star Charity 5K and Fun Run on behalf of Stand Up to Cancer."
