It’s a tough time for the Mahomes family, especially Randi Mahomes. She lost her mother Debbie Bates Martin to health issues in early April. But in the need of the hour, the Chiefs kingdom, along with the rest of the football world, is standing right behind her. Fans have pledged their financial support to honor the grandmother of the Kansas City Chiefs’ $503 million QB Patrick Mahomes.
Debbie was a pillar of support for her family and the community she lived as a part of. She worked at the Whitehouse High School for a long time, ensuring education for the less privileged. Her daughter Randi wants to carry on with the cause to honor her. And Randi provided the latest update on the donation drive that she started a little while ago.
Fans react to Randi Mahomes’ update
Randi Mahomes is fundraising for a scholarship in the name of the late grandmother of the Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes. In the latest update to that cause, she revealed that the pop-up Lee’s Summit fetched $270 in funds for the scholarship. She also thanked everyone who showed up at the pop-up.
But the Chiefs kingdom didn’t like the fact that it was such a small amount. The Chiefs fans and the broader football community offered their financial support in a bid to honor the legacy of Debbi Bates. Here are a few fan reactions.
Randi had started a GoFundMe page a while ago to set up an educational scholarship fund for the kids in need. The page has helped the cause to raise more than $5000 so far. And with the Chiefs Kingdom in full support, the cause for their QB Patrick Mahomes’ biggest fan’s legacy will surely reach its goal.
The biggest support for Patrick Mahomes
Apart from his mother, Patrick Mahomes got the biggest backing to follow his dreams from his grandmother Debbie Bates. She attended many of the QB’s high school and college games. Debbie recently saw her dear grandson lift the Super Bowl title for the second time.
