Saturday is the annual 101 Awards honoring the top players and coaches in the NFL. Each year the awards are given out by the Kansas City Chiefs with the proceeds of the event benefiting the University of Kansas Health System. Since 2011 the 101 Awards has generated millions of dollars for its beneficiaries.

Chiefs' President Mark Donovan talks about the awards and what it means to the community.

The goal of the University of Kansas Health System's partnership with the Chiefs is twofold. First to provide the best care for the team but also take that same care to the young athletes in the Metro and beyond. Dr. David Smith says its more than just helping athletes at Arrowhead.

University of Kansas Health System CEO Bob Page talks about the whole approach to wellness for young athletes.
