The Kansas City Chiefs hosted a group of Special Olympians for an exclusive tour of the Sports Lab Tuesday afternoon.
The Arrowhead Stadium Sports Lab is a destination for students of all ages to learn about the NFL's Play 60 Initiative.
Prior to entering the lab, members of the Chiefs defensive back unit surprised the guests.
"We got a chance to go around and play some games to get to know a little bit about it before we got to know the kids," Chiefs safety Daniel Sorensen said. "Everything is very educational and very hands on, so it's a great interactive environment."
Cornerback Steve Nelson liked the fact that he could spend his day off meeting and greeting with the Special Olympians, who look up to him along with the other defensive backs.
"Giving back to the kids, that's what it's all about," Nelson said. "Once you get on a certain level, you see that that's what it's really about because these kids look up to us."
Following the Sports Lab tour, the Special Olympians concluded their day with a VIP look of Arrowhead Stadium.
