Celebrate Back To Football Thursday And Help A Local School

Posted by Mike Wobschall on September 6, 2010 – 1:46 pm

Vikings fans, thanks to an NFL program promoting the beginning of the 2010 season and benefitting education, you could win $10,000 in fitness equipment for your local school as well as a special Vikings fitness assembly with players, cheerleaders and Viktor the Viking on December 7th.

The national campaign is called Back to Football Friday. But for Vikings fans, it’s Back to Football Thursday (the Vikings open their season on Thursday night). The contest runs from the Vikings season-openr opener on September 9th through September 17th.

The concept is to celebrate the start of the Vikings season at your local school in a creative way, such as decorating a classroom in a Vikings theme, encouraging students to wear Vikings apparel, etc. The key is to take pictures of the celebration and load them to www.nflrush.com; 3 essay questions (short answers) also need to be answered as part of the contest.

No, this isn’t like playing the lottery. If you register your school, you have a reasonable shot at winning! So, click on this link. The Vikings wish you luck!

    Hey Steve! Sounds pretty cool. I’m involved in charity work myself, so anytime an athlete competes for his favorite charity I love to support them. I’ll definitely tune it! Have you seen the website? http://www.nbc.com/minute-to-win-it/

    Caspa. did you see last nights episode? What a cliffhanger! I’m definitely tuning in tonight to Minute To Win It at 8 pm to see if Bernard Berrian and Amber win $250,000. Then Shiancoe and Thomas compete. Night of relaxation, here I come!!

    Nice to see the Vikings players’ doing a lot of chairty fund raisers. I am not a total football junkie just started watching the Vikings because of my fiance. He has loved them since he was a kid. I am quite impressed and hope that they have a great season…and even if they don’t have a super bowl end, because of their positive “charity” presence I will support them no matter what as a loyal fan. Good job guys and good luck on Thursday nite against the Saints!!!
