Minnesota Vikings Participate In Annual Playground Build

For the seventh consecutive season, the majority of the Minnesota Vikings' roster participated in building a playground at a school in the Twin Cities area.

This year's lucky recipients were the children from the Sheridan Arts Magnet School in Minneapolis. Thanks to Kaboom, Toro, the YMCA, and the Vikings, a group of people came together and constructed a new playground for the school in just one day.

Construction of the playground started at around 8 AM when the Vikings' players arrived after their morning OTA practice, and Vikings' college scouting director Scott Studwell was pretty much running things. While the players and volunteers worked on other projects, Studwell was responsible for the merry-go-round. . .he didn't actually build it, he just stared it down until it decided to build itself.

(We're still working on verifying that claim.)

If you want to see more pictures from today's playground bill, you can find a bunch on the FaceBook page of Fox Sports North's Ann Carroll, who was in attendance at the event as well.

Always nice to see the team getting out into the community and giving back. This was the last event from this round of OTAs. . .the team will be together again next Tuesday through Thursday, June 5-7.
