How to Help Vikings Community Partners Respond Against COVID-19

Multiple community partners of the Minnesota Vikings are making adjustments to their programs and ramping up efforts to help the region in a fight against the COVID-19 virus.

Unite the North Driven by Polaris

Unite the North Driven by Polaris

The North is strongest when we stand together and there has never been a time where that is more needed or truer.

The Minnesota Vikings, in partnership with Polaris, are proud to recognize the healthcare workers who are our offensive line in battling COVID-19. Together, we have created a limited edition Unite the North hat to raise funds to aid these workers and their relief efforts. With a minimum donation of $20.00, you will receive a free Unite the North hat with all proceeds (minus only a small processing fee) going directly to the North Memorial Foundation. To show additional support, Polaris will also match your minimum donation on every hat sold. This means that with a $20 donation, over $37 dollars will be donated to the cause.

Unite the North hats are currently SOLD OUT.

For those that have already bought hats, they will be shipped to you the week of May 25.
