Children’s Minnesota partnered with beloved former Viking Chad Greenway and his Lead the Way Foundation for a thrilling kickoff to Super Bowl LII week festivities. The Child Life Zone was transformed into a football stadium where patients and families used their play books during an action-packed afternoon. It was a day for making memories as Greenway, along with other local athletes and radio personalities, joined patients and families for several football themed games, crafts, and touchdown celebrations. Child Life Specialist Sarah Stenson expressed, “’A Day to Lead the Way’ was such an enriching experience for patients and families as they were immersed in an afternoon full of football. Chad Greenway truly teamed up with Children Minnesota to demonstrate our Core Values of Kids First and Join Together, making this event such a huge success.”

Greenway, who played his entire 11-year NFL career for the Minnesota Vikings, has been a Teammate for over five years.
