Chad Greenway Breaks Ground For A New Playground and Hosts Field of Dreams Weekend
Sunday, August 27, 2017

MINNEAPOLIS, MN (Sunday, August 27, 2017) –While former Minnesota Vikings’ Chad Greenway announced his retirement from the NFL in March, Chad is continuing to use his platform to be of service through his foundation, Chad Greenway’s Lead the Way Foundation, as it was a busy weekend for Chad and his foundation.  

On Friday, Chad broke ground on an inclusive, handicap accessible playground at Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota. Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota, where the playground is being built, serves more than 100,000 kids per year in the ambulatory and inpatient areas. With all patients having access to the playground, the playground will be able to provide a positive distraction that kids can spend hours on to have a normal experience.  

The groundbreaking signifies a new and exciting partnership between Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota and Chad Greenway’s Lead the Way Foundation in the coming year.  

Additionally, on Saturday and Sunday, Chad welcomed 12 families with chronically and critically ill children to an all-expense paid weekend stay-cation at Mall of America this weekend. Families checked in to the Radisson Blu Saturday morning, participated in a Welcome Lunch and enjoyed a series of private events throughout the Mall of America, such as an American Girl Tea Party and Build-a-Bear Party and much more.  

After breakfast Sunday morning, guests enjoyed exclusive access to Nickelodeon Universe. The weekend concluded with a goodbye lunch hosted by the Greenway’s at Margaritaville. The 12 families were identified through child-life specialists at Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota.     

Field of Dreams weekend was made possible through the help of several generous sponsors: Mall of America, Radisson Blu and Margaritaville.  

Tickets and sponsorships are still available for Chad Greenway’s 7th Annual Celebrity Waiter Night on Monday, September 18. Join Chad, current Vikings and celebrity friends for a benefit dinner at Manny’s Steakhouse to support Chad Greenway’s Lead the Way Foundation. Sponsorships and tickets are available at  

The primary focus of the Lead the Way Foundation is to provide critically and chronically ill children and their families throughout Greater Minneapolis with daily support and life changing experiences.
