Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce held his first annual Elite Pro Skills Camp on Saturday and there were a couple things worth bringing to light.
If you were paying attention last week, Twitter user Jen shared a video of her son learning he would go to the camp and meet Kelce, and as a result, he burst into tears.

On Saturday, a major update. They met:
After the camp ended, Kelce surprised 10 attendees with a free shopping spree at Dick’s Sporting Goods. To say that they were excited would be an understatement:
Kelce’s charity, Eighty-Seven & Running, shared some photos from the store:
