KANSAS CITY, Mo. — One Kansas City-area school district has issued a Patrick Mahomes-inspired challenge in support of the Chiefs.

Kansas City, Kansas, Public Schools Superintendent Charles Foust issued the “Mahomes Ketchup Challenge” on Tuesday via social media.

Foust ate a ketchup sandwich then challenged others in the district to do the same and share videos on social media, including the hashtag #MahomesKetchupChallenge.

In less than 24 hours, New Stanley Elementary Schoolteachers accepted along with a classroom full of kindergarteners.

Staff at KCK Public Schools' central office also stepped up to the challenge.

The Chiefs quarterback’s love for the condiment became well-known after a 2018 ESPN interview in which he revealed that he puts it on steak as well as macaroni and cheese.

Mahomes also signed an endorsement deal with Hunt’s last year.
