RealTruck Gives $50K to Travis Kelce’s 87 & Running Foundation

Along with the donation, RealTruck announced a decked-out Toyota Tundra giveaway to support Kelce's foundation.

RealTruck, Inc. announced the Ultimate Tailgating Truck Giveaway, giving a passionate football fan a chance to win a customized Toyota Tundra, accessorized for Game Day. The sweepstakes was announced at Travis Kelce’s first Car Jam event in Kansas City on Sept. 22, which RealTruck sponsored.

Kelce, a Kansas City Chiefs’ tight end, was presented with a $50,000 check at the Kelce Car Jam event on behalf of RealTruck by Kansas City firefighter Craig Cummings. The donation will support Kelce’s 87 & Running foundation, which aims to empower disadvantaged youth to achieve success by providing resources and support to their communities and cultivating their talent in the areas of education, business, athletics, STEM and the arts.

In support of Kelce Car Jam, 87 & Running partnered with Operation Breakthrough and MindDrive to teach over 50 high school students about fabrication, welding, electric vehicle design, engineering and auto restoration skills. The students built an electric muscle car, which was on display at Car Jam.

The Ultimate Tailgating Truck Giveaway runs through November 2, and anyone can enter to win at, the company said. Among many of the features added to the Toyota Tundra are a RetraxPro XR, a ProComp 2.5-in. lift kit, a Rhino Rack Pioneer Platform rack kit and more.
