Southeast Minnesota School Says “Thank you for the gift!” to The Minnesota Vikings
It's always fun to get a surprise in the mail and last week, Bonner Elementary in Stewartville got a fun one from the Minnesota Vikings.
This week we received an unexpected package from the Minnesota Vikings. Contained within the box was a flag football kit and curriculum book. The kit included 30 football belts with pinnies, ten footballs, and a kicking tee. This package is in direct support of the Minnesota Vikings commitment to growing the game of football and encouraging physical activity. After calling the organization, this appears to be a statewide initiative at the elementary level. A big, purple “Thank you” to the Minnesota Vikings for supporting our school and promoting the importance of at least 60 minutes of physical activity each day! - Bonner Elementary Facebook Page
According to the Minnesota Vikings website, "NFL Play 60 is the NFL's youth health and fitness campaign focused on increasing the wellness of young fans by encouraging them to be active for at least 60 minutes each day. NFL Play 60 is designed to tackle childhood obesity through a commitment to health and fitness. NFL Play 60 is implemented throughout Minnesota in schools, after-school and Vikings programs."
