Vikings WR Rice Blogs About His Day at the Special Olympics

Wanted to do a quick blog about my day today because I went to a Special Olympics event with Adrian Peterson and about 10-12 other Vikings.

We ran a punt, pass and kick competition for the kids. Bernard Berrian, Heath Farwell, Marcus McCauley and a bunch of other guys helped out.

It was my first time working with the Special Olympics and it really touched me to see how excited they got just to be around the players and get to participate in things they usually don’t do, especially with some of their favorite players.

I talked to one of the mentors and he said for most of the kids this is the highlight of their year. The kids got to sit in the bleachers and watch practice before the event. It touched me to be able to see the smiles on their faces catching balls here at the facility and working on their touchdown dances.
