Sioux Falls, SD
Once again Hy-Vee and Sanford didn't disappoint with their annual Legends for Kids event. Terrell Davis, Chad Greenway, and Dave Winfield were a few fo the celebrities headlining this year’s clinics.
After the charity golf event the free clinics begin all across Sioux Falls. Augie football players along with Chad Greenway and Terrell Davis met at Kirkeby-Over Stadium to run the kids through a few drills on the grid-iron. Here is why the two-time Super Champion known as "T.D." decided to help out.
"Someone helped you get to where you are. I think we all grow up with that in mind, so we tend to give back a lot. We give our time, which is the most important. We can all give money back, which is good, but I think time is more important. I've always felt that when I get into a position where I can give back, I would and that's what I continue to do," Former Bronco Terrell Davis said.
Vikings All-Pro Linebacker, Chad Greenway, has supported the Legends event every year. He continues to return to his home state in hopes of showing kids they too can work towards their dreams.
"Obviously it's cool to see all the kids wearing jerseys and getting excited for the chance to get to meet you. A lot of them probably don't even realize that I grew up an hour form here in Mount Vernon. To me that is really the coolest part of this event. We get to come back and tell these kids that they can become and do anything they want, no matter where they come from, and that is the message they need to hear," Vikings LB Chad Greenway said.
Dave Winfield has been giving back to charities for over four decades. After a few days helping with this event it didn't take the Hall of Fame slugger long to realize how special it is.
"Let me tell you something," Baseball Hall of Famer Dave Winfield said. "This is the first time I've been to Sioux Falls and you guys have a blue print for success. You have a community partnership working together. You're bringing in some celebrities, but it's the volunteers, the people with the kind contributions, leaderships, and all of the components to make a partnership that can reach the goal of helping kids. It's pretty unbelievable or a town of a couple hundred thousand people. Sioux Falls, you ought to be proud."
Mike Miller and Christian Laettner will headline the basketball camp taking place at the Sanford Pentagon beginning at 9 a.m. The Wrestling clinic will follow at 12:30 in the afternoon.
