Patrick Mahomes is setting down roots and giving back to the Kansas City community. Chiefs fans rejoice.
After a sensational 2018 season in which he won the NFL’s MVP award, Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes is ready to face his next challenge.
That is giving back to the Kansas City community.
Mahomes’s agent, Leigh Steinberg, confirmed during a podcast earlier this week that the phenom will be launching his own charitable organization called “No. 15 and the Mahomies Foundation” later this offseason.
The foundation will help kids at risk and those with health problems, as well as children who want more sports opportunities. The announcement from Steinberg is further proof that Mahomes has no intention of going elsewhere any time soon. Earlier this month, the already-legendary youngster made no secret of the fact that he wants to spend his career in Kansas City and retire a Chief.
No stranger to charity work, Mahomes has been seen around the community helping others both during the season and the off-season. Last season, he spent one of his few days off to help build transitional housing for veterans with The Veterans Community Project.
A firm supporter of the NFL’s My Cause, My Cleats campaign, the Chiefs leader also visits patients at the University of Kansas Health System. In one of his most memorable off-the-field moments last season, the quarterback surprised a group of eight- to thirteen-year-old boys and girls at a local Dick’s Sporting Goods store, treating them to a shopping spree and presenting KC United founder Adrion Roberson with a check for $5,000.
Speaking on behalf of his client, Steinberg said, “The whole approach to Kansas City is to try and put down roots in that community. The whole point was to try to give back to Kansas City.”
Patrick Mahomes is well on his way accomplishing just that, and Chiefs fan couldn’t be happier.
