Stepping up for his city.

Of course by now we’ve all seen the horrifying images of the moments when shots rang out at what was supposed to be a day of celebration for Kansas City after their Super Bowl victory.

So far one person has been confirmed dead, a popular DJ for radio station KKFI, Lisa Lopez. And at least 22 people were injured in the shooting, many of them children, making the situation all the more heartbreaking – and infuriating.

But many stories of the heroic actions of bystanders have emerged through the tragedy, like the men who chased down and tackled one of the suspected shooters.

Many members of the Chiefs, including guard Trey Smith and even coach Andy Reid, also helped to provide comfort amid the immediate chaos of the unfolding tragedy, before the team was taken by bus back to Arrowhead Stadium.

And today, quarterback Patrick Mahomes and his wife Brittany spent time visiting victims at Children’s Hospital in Kansas City.

Well add Travis Kelce to the long list of members of the Chiefs family who are stepping up to help their community.

Two $50,000 donations were made to a GoFundMe set up for Madison and Melia Reyes, two sisters who were injured in the shooting (and who Patrick and Brittany Mahomes visited with earlier today).

According to the fundraiser:

“The girls were celebrating with many members of their family when they were senselessly injured. We ask that you continue to keep the family in your prayers as the girls work to recover. This fund will help provide vital financial support for their physical and mental recovery, any leftover funds will be saved for their college funds.”

The campaign has raised nearly $175,000 so far, including the $100,000 donation from Kelce’s Eighty-Seven Running foundation.

The donation comes after Kelce’s girlfriend, pop superstar Taylor Swift, donated $100k to a GoFundMe established for the family of Lisa Lopez-Galvan, a Kansas City radio DJ who was killed in the senseless shooting. Galvan was the cousin of the Reyes sisters’ mother.

Nice to see so many people stepping up to help in times of tragedy, and giving us all a reminder that the good people in the world far outnumber the bad.
