Meet Kansas City Chiefs star quarterback Patrick Mahomes.
Did you know Patrick Mahomes has a charity called 15 and the Mahomies Foundation?
15 and the Mahomies is a non-profit foundation dedicated to improving the lives of children.
The foundation’s signature program, 15 FOR 15, supports “15 youth charitable initiatives that focus on academics, science, the arts, classroom supplies, athletics, children with disabilities, after-school programs and more.”
15 and the Mahomies is partnered with many charities and non-profit organizations including Boys & Girls Clubs, Make-A-Wish Foundation, Operation Breakthrough, Children’s Advocacy Center of the South Plains, and more.
Patrick Mahomes is just as dedicated to his foundation as he is to his team. According to Radio.com, Mahomes visited Logan Bradley, a young man recovering from a kidney transplant at Children’s Mercy Hospital in Kansas City.
Logan recounts his visit from Mahomes below:
