When Travis Kelce signed a four-year, $57 million agreement extension with the Chiefs this week, he chose that his first purchase would be something more meaningful than a new vehicle.
Kelce revealed that he will be purchasing a building for his Eighty-Seven & & Running Foundation to offer urban Kansas City teens a safe place where they can study science, engineering, innovation and mathematics.
“I am buying the structure that will be the future home of the Ignition Lab: Powered by 87 & & Running– a co-working area where these teenagers will have the assistance, resources, and opportunity to explore professions in STEM, introduce their own entrepreneurial endeavors and acquire real-world experience,” Kelce wrote on the structures site.
Kelce was motivated to begin the foundation due to the fact that he saw in his own youth, maturing in a diverse community in Cleveland Heights, Ohio, that numerous kids didnt have the same advantages that he did. And his brand-new contract is a way for him to do so when he got to the NFL he was determined to help disadvantaged kids.
