UC Legend Travis Kelce Setting up Athletic Mental Health Endowment

CINCINNATI – Former UC tight end and great Chief Travis Kelce is starting a donation to UC through his foundation, Eighty-Seven & Running.

The home is funded by the Cincinnati Department of Sport Psychology and Counseling. It will help expand the staff and staff under Sports Psychology Director Lenetia Nickell.

“During my time at UC, I developed a solid infrastructure of people around me to help me navigate the day-to-day life of a student-athlete,” Kelce said in a press release. “The transition from high school to college was tough; it was an emotional rollercoaster at times juggling my academic responsibilities and keeping myself grounded. There was little room for error in the classroom and on the field. Being able to have that support system is part of the reason I decided to start this fund and give back to my alma mater and its athletic department. “I’m at a place in my career where I can share my experiences and lend resources to provide varsity student-athletes with the help they need to become the best versions of themselves they can be.”
