Jeffrey Steffensen to ‘Lead The Team’ at Vikings game

Jeffrey Steffensen

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, sixth-grader Jeffrey Steffensen is leading the team onto the field before the Vikings face-off with the Cleveland Browns.

Jeffrey was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease when he was 6 years old and has battled pneumonia 23 times. His claim to fame? He once conned a nurse into thinking he only drank flavored water.

He’s the youngest of five children and is the “trooper” in the family. He loves listening to music, playing on his X-Box, fishing and drawing. His favorite Viking is running back Adrian Peterson.

We welcome Jeffrey and his family to this week’s “Lead The Team” event.
