KMIZ out of Columbia were one of the news outlets that covered a nice gesture by the Kansas City Chiefs last week honoring Missouri's Special Olympics athletes.

Several Chiefs players were present that night also including linebacker Nick Bolton and some of the Missouri Special Olympics athletes were even able to ask Coach Reid some questions in a news conference.

Coach Andy Reid - "The opportunity they have to achieve...I think that's so important...that's so important to their families. The support we can give is to jump in and hold hands in this."

Nick Bolton - "As athletes, I believe we have an opportunity to use our platform to raise awareness of the causes that are important to us and that's why I'm here. I believe in their mission...Special Olympics Missouri...and I want to help them spread the word and create more opportunities."

Well done, Kansas City Chiefs to understand how powerful it can be when great teams help local athletes like Special Olympics Missouri who overcome challenges daily and be given their platform to celebrate their achievements.
