As voters head to the polls on Tuesday to exercise one of many great American rights, John Sullivan and many of his teammates will visit those who dedicated much of their lives to fighting and protecting that freedome. Sullivan, along with Christian Ballard, McLeod Bethel-Thompson, Everson Griffen, Marvin Mitchell, Mistral Raymond, Jerome Simpson and the Minnesota Vikings Cheerleaders and Viktor the Viking visited the VA Medical Center on Tuesday morning.
The players visited the community living room and spinal cord injury center multi-purpose room. As part of the visit, UnitedHealthcare executives donated a Ride 2 Recovery Stealth road bike to the Patient Recreation Program to be used soldiers who come through the program.
The Vikings organization has marked the November 11th Vikings-Lions matchup, on Veterans Day, as their “Salute to Service” game.
This is the 12th consecutive year the Vikings and Minnesota Department of Veterans of Foreign Wars have partnered for a community outreach project.
