Kyle Rudolph has been invested in the Minneapolis/St. Paul community since he joined the Minnesota Vikings back in 2011, most notably by opening Kyle Rudolph's End Zone at the University of Minnesota Masonic Children's Hospital. The End Zone is a place where kids who are undergoing treatments can go to play and find a sense of normalcy during their time at the hospital. He has been nominated for the 2018 Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year Award recognizing his outstanding community service activities.
What attributes connect you to your purpose?
Being compassionate. I am always looking for a way to do more, give more, and support others. My compassion has led me to divide my time between the University of Minnesota Masonic Children's Hospital, Muscular Dystrophy Association, Hannah & Friends, Starkey Hearing Foundation, Teammates For Kids, and the American Cancer Society's Athlete Council.
What does the world need more of?
The world needs more do-ers, more people who are working hard to make their community a better place for future generations. Even if it is just donating your time, that can make a huge difference to those in need. In the new year, I encourage people to find a way to get involved with a local organization or cause to help make a difference.
