Once a high school football star just up the road in Sharonville at Princeton High School, Spencer Ware, the Cincinnati native who is now a running back for the Kansas City Chiefs, made a visit back home to the town where he grew up this week to pay tribute to a group of 30 lucky kids from the Winton Recreational Center.

Ware hosted an event at Full Throttle Indoor Karting on Thursday afternoon from 11:00-2:00, where he provided free transportation, go-karting,
and lunch to the thirty kids of the Recreational Center. 

“It’s everything, just letting them know that whatever you set your mind to that you can just go do it,” Ware said when asked about giving back
to the community that raised him. “We have a lot of people that are living proof in my family and you just have to work together.  It’s all about family.”

The star running back couldn’t be more thankful for all of the people who have helped him get to where he is today and this event was a great way
for him to use his platform to help pay it forward to the kids who admire him the most.

“I’m just here to keep it real with them and have fun, but I also to want to get them in the right frame of mind to help them later on life,” Ware said.
