The Iowa State University Alumni of Kansas City & Myasthenia Gravis Association are excited to announce a special partnership starting in 2017. Based of the core principles established in Cy's Day of Service, the Iowa State University Alumni of Kansas City wanted to establish an opportunity to give back throughout the entire year. This partnership with MGA will not only raise public awareness, but it is a special opportunity for our Iowa State community in Kansas City to make a difference for many individuals. Over the next few months, we will be announcing several major events that are in collaboration with MGA. Stay tuned for more information, and please take some time to check out this great organization and the work they do in the link below.


See you in KC for Cy’s Day of Service! For those that didn’t know, Cy’s Day of Service is designed to unite Iowa State alumni worldwide in community service during each year. Cy’s Day of Service is a great opportunity to help spread the pride alumni have in Iowa State University, recognize the combined efforts of all alumni that have had a tremendous impact on local communities, and show how ISU alumni change the world.

This year, we're proud to be a part of the Annual MGA Triple Crown Showdown 5K again. It has been a few years since we last helped out this great event but we are back to support it again this year. We are looking for volunteers the morning of the race to help check in runners and hand out pack...ets, help sell raffle tickets, or be along the course to cheer along the runners. You can also run in the 5K if that is something you would rather do to support MGA.

If you would like to volunteer please contact:
Kyle Flander ( or Bryan Schmidt (
