Former Kentucky basketball player Tayshaun Prince was back in Lexington last night helping raise money for Special Olympics Kentucky. Special Olympics is a program that trains and coaches athletes with intellectual disabilities.

Prince spoke at the “Chew for a Cause” event, which featured a dinner and auctioned off various items. All of the proceeds benefited Special Olympics Kentucky.

CN2’s Lyndsey Gough caught up with Tayshaun Prince about his time at Kentucky and what it means for him to give back to the community.
