Kansas City, Kansas Police Department has turned a 128-year-old church into a community gym for kids.
St. Mary's Church is home to the city's first Police Athletic League. Mayor David Alvey recognized it at the grand opening Thursday night, but the program has been up and running for a few weeks.
Every weeknight from 5-9 p.m., the doors of the church at 5th and Ann Avenue are open to the public.
Executive Director Matt Tomasic spent 23 years with the police department in Kansas City, Missouri, but he has lived in Kansas City, Kansas, his whole life.
