Special Olympics helped Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles, Now he is giving back

Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles had disabilities of his own growing up, but the All-Pro runner is now trying to inspire others taking part of the Special Olympics. As he addressed the participants, Charles admitted that growing up with a disability wasn’t easy. However, what he endured made him stronger and turned him into who he is today.

 

He then went on to deliver the oath:
