Kyle Rudolph has been committed to University of Minnesota Masonic Children’s Hospital since being drafted by the Minnesota Vikings in 2011. Whether he is visiting patients at their bedside, signing autographs for families, sponsoring movie nights in the Wilf Family Auditorium, or hosting fundraising events like an NFL Draft Party, Kyle’s dedication to Masonic Children’s Hospital is a true inspiration.
He has now committed to a new initiative to build a state-of-the-art 2,500 sq ft. patient family centered space at Masonic Children’s Hospital. With a lead gift made by Kyle and Jordan Rudolph, they are “moving the chains” and looking to partner with the community to rally around the creation of Kyle Rudolph’s End Zone.
Children and teens need a space for laughter and play. A place to hang out and be themselves. This is especially true while they are facing health challenges. Kyle Rudolph's End Zone was designed to help children and teenagers find a place to play, relax, engage in healing therapies, and socialize with other kids who know what it’s like to spend time in the hospital. Kyle Rudolph's End Zone will be staffed by Child Family Life specialists, trained in helping patients and families navigate the emotional, mental and physical demands during their stay at University of Minnesota Masonic Children's Hospital. No adults allowed -- unless they are ready to play!
Please consider joining the team and making a gift to support Kyle Rudolph's End Zone. Together, we can give kids more days to play, nights to dream, and more time to just be kids!
