Chad Greenway, Dave McElroy surprise kids at Children's Hospital

Updated: January 28, 2020 07:17 PM

A former Minnesota Viking and a Minnesota country artist teamed up to bring smiles to the kids at Children's Hospital on Tuesday.

Chad Greenway, who played linebacker for the Vikings from 2006 to 2016, and country singer Dave McElroy surprised kids at the hospital with things like iPads, stuffed animals and toys.

"It was a great day," McElroy said. "Like you said, it's always about giving back. Especially in the art community. Being with our good buddy Chad Greenway was a ton of fun. Just visiting the kids was wonderful."'

The visit was put together by Greenway's Lead the Way Foundation, which supports ill and physically challenged kids throughout the Twin Cities.
