December 15, 2017 MZF partnered with DICK’S Sporting Goods and offered a unique experience for 26 children from Children’s Minnesota Hospital. The participants were taken in a limo to DSG, served dinner and received gift cards to shop while Coach Zimmer and several players help them pick out their items. The children received a goodie bag from DSG which included a Frisbee, football and other swag. MZF provided a Vikings mini helmet and allowed children to get autographs and a photo with players and Coach Zimmer. Players involved in 2017 included: H. Smith, B. Robison, T. Newman, X. Rhodes, K. McDermott, B. Gedeon, and E. Wilson.
