Although the football season may be officially over, the Minnesota Vikings Cheerleaders have stayed busy during the months of January and February reaching out to the community, and keeping the excitement of the NFL alive! Here are but a few of the fun and impactful appearances that the MVC completed this month.
January was filled with many fun appearances by the Minnesota Vikings Cheerleaders, including the Saturday Morning at the Races event held at the University of Minnesota Duluth Campus. Once there, Jacqui, Jordan and Victor cheered on children ages 14 and under as they participated in various races. The event was presented by Young Athletes Foundation, Grandma's Marathon and University of Minnesota Duluth Athletics.
Jeanne, Kate, Taylor and Michelle had the amazing opportunity to travel the Grand Forks Air Force Base where they were able to thank the troops in person for their dedication and service to the military. The girls traveled around the base meeting and taking pictures with the troops, and ended the weekend tour with a Super Bowl event.
As you may have seen, the Cheerleaders also took time out their busy schedules to enjoy the beautiful Minnesota weather surrounding Winter Park.
Our February schedule started out with a Blast, quite literally as the entire Minnesota Vikings organization packed up and moved to Thief River Falls, Minnesota for the 20th annual Minnesota Vikings Arctic Blast Snowmobile Rally. This year's event including performances and meet and greets with the Minnesota Vikings Cheerleaders, hospitals visits and a special concert performance from Hairball. The weekend long event was jam packed with excitement, and helped raise money for the Minnesota Vikings Children's Fund Charity.
Who didn't love playing with trucks as a kid? Saral and I traveled down to Cedar Rapids, Iowa for the annual "Big Boy Toy Show" in February. We were excited to see so many Vikings fans in attendance, and we spent the afternoon taking pictures and signing calendars. Although we were close to "Bear's Country" we left satisfied knowing that we converted a few "Blue and Orange" fans to the much preferred "Purple and Gold" fan base.
February is American Heart month, and the Minnesota Vikings Cheerleaders were proud to help support the American Heart Association's "Go Red Fashion Show" held at the Mall of America. The Cheerleaders performed on stage, and spent time interacting with the fans in attendance. The "Go Red Fashion Show" was an amazing event that brought together entertainment, fashion and awareness to a disease that will claim the life of one out of every three women.
As spring quickly approaches, be sure to check the Minnesota Vikings website regularly so see where the Cheerleader will be next. We would love to see you make it out to one of our community events, or come to our upcoming audition process during the month of April.
