Patrick Mahomes is known for his good character - both on and off the field. The 2019 NFL MVP is doing all he can to help others during the coronavirus pandemic.

The Chiefs QB is making a generous $100,000 donation to local organizations in the Kansas City area in light of the global disease outbreak. Mahomes is also pledging 15,000 meals to help those in need during this tumultuous time.

Mahomes' teammate - Tyreek Hill - sparked the generous outpouring with a challenge on Twitter on Tuesday. Hill pledged 6,000 meals himself and challenged Mahomes and other teammates to participate in the challenge.

This type of kindness is exactly what we need to see during a time like this. Mahomes was very enthusiastic to participate, as seen in the tweet below:

The coronavirus has put the sports world on hold as the outbreak sparked the NCAA Tournament's cancellation and NBA season's postponement. In this turbulent era, athletes across the globe are coming together to support those in need.

The NBA's Kevin Love just recently donated $100,000 to staffers who work at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse. Love's been the leader in athletes using their influence and financial status to help during this virus crisis. Several other athletes have followed.

Hopefully, Mahomes' generous donation and pledge helps spark even more generosity from athletes of all sports.
