As the proud sponsor of the Mini Vikings Kids Club, at each home Vikings game, a Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota patient “Leads The Team.” This week, 17-year-old De’Angelo Boyd is leading the team onto the field before the Vikings face-off with the Tennessee Titans. This is the first in-stadium Vikings game for De’Angelo, his brother Dejion and cousins Marquis and Latoya.
De’Angelo is a high school junior and enjoys playing basketball and hanging out with his friends. In the midst of school and activities, De’Angelo comes to Children’s twice a month for treatment of sickle cell disease – a hereditary blood disorder that he was diagnosed with at 4 months old.
We welcome De’Angelo and his family to this week’s “Lead The Team” event.
