Retired NFL Star Chad "Ochocinco" Johnson stepped in to help a Baltimore youth track and field team make the trip to National Junior Olympics in two weeks.

The Turbo Track Club's four members are headed to Kansas City.

The club created a GoFundMe page to raise funds for the trip.

Johnson donated $2,200 to help the team reach their $5,000 fundraising goal.

He has a daughter, who is one of the nation's top 12-year-old runner.

Johnson spent most of his professional career playing wide receiver for the Cincinnati Bengals.
