Vikings kicker Blair Walsh donates to Ronald McDonald House


Minnesota Vikings kicker Blair Walsh is a regular when it comes to donating to the Ronald McDonald House Charities Midwest, adding another $25,000 recently.

In today’s media world, it’s nice to hear stories about people giving back to the community. At a time when the news is dominated by stories of horror and terror, there are still individuals out there doing what they can to help out their fellow man. Minnesota Vikings kicker Blair Walsh is one of those individuals.

Walsh has made a habit of taking a trip to the Ronald McDonald House each year to make a big donation and help brighten the day of people and children in need. This time, the Vikings kicker brought along a check for $25,000 and plenty of pens to sign autographs for the patients and their families.

Here is the video of Beyond The Gridiron’s segment on Blair Walsh from the YouTube account of Fan Minnesota Vikings:

The Minnesota Vikings do a lot for children, hospitals, and other charities in the Minnesota area. Blair Walsh knows just how important it is to help out these people who sometimes can’t afford the medical attention and related costs that come with difficult situations according to

"“They’ve been through so much and stuff kids their age should not have to go through. They have a great support system here and people who care about them generally as people, and it’s awesome,” Walsh said. “You have people who truly care about the welfare of these children and their families. This is a place for them to stay and get away from the hospital scene and be a family during tough times. It’s one of those charities that’s so important in our society and in our community here.”"

Huge thanks go out to Blair Walsh for donating his time and money to the Ronald McDonald House. Also, it’s great to see members of the Minnesota Vikings stepping up and doing great things for the community.
