Twins Daily Rallying Around #MoreThanWords
The campaign is called the #MoreThanWords campaign and several Vikings blogs are participating, including Vikings Territory, Vikings Corner and the Daily Norseman. The goal of all the MinnCentric blogs has been to build a supportive community of blogs around our passions, and this campaign is a great example of what can be done when they come together. They’re already raised over $10,000 for the foundation and I’m sure the Twins Daily, Vikings Journal and Wild Xtra communities can help that total go even higher.
The Mike Zimmer Foundation honors Mike’s wife Vikki, who passed away in 2009. The Mike Zimmer Foundation’s programs include:
- Mike Zimmer’s “X’s O’s A+’s” Football Camp, a free camp that mixes football with the importance of studies.
- Mike Zimmer’s MVP scholarships and the Bill Zimmer Memorial Scholarship, which provide as much as $25,000 towards 4-year university degrees.
- Mike Zimmer’s Stand Out Students, a program that rewards elementary students who achieve honor roll status with awards and visits with Zimmer and Vikings players.
