610 Sports Takes a Stand Against The Chiefs

610 Sports in Kansas City is holding the Kansas City Chiefs accountable, and making a difference while doing so.

On Monday, the radio station launched a GoFundMe page for the Rose Brooks Center, a KC-area safe haven for domestic violence victims. The idea was developed right after the Chiefs selected Tyreek Hill over the weekend. In 2015, Hill pled guilty to strangling his pregnant girlfriend and punching her in the stomach.

Afternoon host Danny Parkins said, “They took him because he’s fast and they think his speed can help them win football games. What we’ve been saying today is don’t talk about it, be about it.”

Parkins’ Co-host Carrington Harrison added, “Don’t tell me on Thursday that character is a very important thing, then on Saturday, draft this guy,”.

610 opened the fundraising page at 2pm on Monday, and by 10pm had already received more than $7,300 in donations.
