Thanks to the help of amazing Vikings fans across the globe, we smashed our initial goal of $10,000.
There are so many people to thank that helped us achieve this incredible feat – all of the participating blogs, our angel sponsor FanHQ, Corri Zimmer and the Mike Zimmer Foundation for being involved and helpful at every step along the way. But at the end of the day, who we really have to thank are all of the amazing members of the Vikings community who contributed to this cause and blew us away. We couldn’t have done it without you and are so thankful for your generosity and kindness.
Why The Zimmer Foundation?
Mike Zimmer is a leader in every sense of the word.
His decision to use his influence, his voice, to better the world is an exact match in terms of the #MoreThanWords mission. He’s a busy guy, he doesn’t need to do that… but he does it anyway.
The Mike Zimmer Foundation’s purpose is benefiting the future of tomorrow through providing opportunities to our youth in need that may otherwise not have those opportunities.
The Mike Zimmer Foundation hopes to to not only promote a healthy, active lifestyle and way of living for children, but also to motivate those less fortunate and help them chase their dreams. The Foundation aims to achieve these goals through college scholarships, free youth football camps, their ‘Learning is Cool’ program and a Vikings game day experience.
