RealTruck Donates to Travis Kelce’s Foundation, Launches Truck Giveaway

RealTruck Donates to Travis Kelce’s Foundation, Launches Truck Giveaway | THE SHOPRealTruck recently launched a truck giveaway contest to support Kansas City Chiefs football player Travis Kelce’s 87 and Running Foundation, the company announced.

The Ultimate Tailgating Truck Giveaway will earn one winner a customized Toyota Tundra accessorized for game day, the company said. The contest was announced at Travis Kelce’s first-ever Car Jam event in Kansas City on Sept. 22, which RealTruck sponsored.

During the event, Kansas City Firefighter Craig Cummings presented a $50,000 check at Kelce Car Jam on behalf of RealTruck in support of Kelce’s 87 and Running foundation, which empowers 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, the foundation said.

“Thanks to RealTruck for sponsoring Kelce Car Jam and generously donating $50,000 to the 87 & Running Foundation to help us continue to empower our kids,” said Kelce. “I can’t wait for the Ultimate Tailgating Truck Giveaway to see what RealTruck comes up with for the lucky winner.”

In support of Kelce Car Jam, 87 and 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 foundation said. The students built an electric muscle car which was on display at Car Jam.

The Ultimate Tailgating Truck Giveaway runs through Nov. 2. Features added to the Toyota Tundra, include a RetraxPro XR, a ProComp 2.5-inch Lift Kit, a Rhino Rack Pioneer Platform Rack Kit and more.

“We’re proud to team up with Travis again for the Kelce Car Jam to provide resources to support young people in underserved communities,” said Tony Ambroza, chief growth officer at RealTruck. “Working with Travis, we look forward to giving away the Ultimate Tailgating Truck this fall and building on Craig Cummings’ legacy as the first person to receive a truck that matched his passion for his favorite football team.”
