I love hearing stories like this in which sport stars go out of their way to help out the community and kids in need. According to Vikings.com, The Vikings quarterback purchased the costumes for the youth that are being assisted by People Serving People, a local shelter for families experiencing homelessness.
“It’s great to see their smiles light up, and hopefully we can give them a day they will remember for a long time,” Cousins said. “We really enjoy being able to use our platform as a football player in the NFL. “Hopefully we can make a positive difference for people, especially here in the Twin Cities,” Cousins added. “It’s a joy. It’s a small thing we can do today.”
Not only did he provide costumes and trick or treating but he also helped pick out costumes and offering fist bumps and encouragement to the kids. After picking out the costumes, everyone then headed to Twin Cities Orthopedics Performance Center where the kids had a chance to do some trick or treating. Vikings staff members set up various spooky stations that included an obstacle course, pumpkin bowling and spot to meet Viktor the Viking.
