Patrick Mahomes is teaming up with the city’s largest volunteer literacy program. The quarterback’s 15 and the Mahomies Foundation is challenging kids to read alongside Lead to Read KC.

An event hosted by the organizations today had all the makings of a pep rally at Brookside Charter School. Instead of talking football though, this event is about scoring points with books. The reading challenge got kicked off with a pre-recorded PSA from the quarterback to the young readers.
