The outdoor practice fields at Winter Park will get quite the workout on Wednesday, as 50 Special Olympics Minnesota (SOM) athletes from across the state will join Vikings players for a fun Punt, Pass and Kick Clinic following Organized Team Activity #5.
The athletes will enjoy watching the team practice and then following practice they will take the field and participate in various punt, pass and kick stations. Following the clinic, players and coaches will stick around to sign autographs and appear in photos with the athletes and their families. Players scheduled to put on the clinic include: Christian Ballard, Chris Cook, Fred Evans, Everson Griffen, Christian Ponder, Cullen Loeffler, Matt Kalil, D’Aundre Reed, Jerome Simpson, Blair Walsh and Joe Webb.
The Punt, Pass and Kick Clinic is part of Special Olympics Minnesota’s ongoing relationship with the Vikings, providing new and meaningful opportunities for Special Olympics Minnesota athletes. Since 1973, SOM has been enhancing the human potential and quality of life for children and adults with intellectual disabilities by offering year-round sports training and competition. By sharing their joy and courage, SOM athletes inspire the human spirit in all of us.
