The Vikings have been working through various scenarios with Adrian Peterson's return timeline, but…
Greenway still hosting Father's Day run
The 5K and fun run are fundraisers for the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board's youth athletic programming.
Also scheduled to attend are some of Greenway's teammates, including John Sullivan, Robert Blanton, Rhett Ellison, Tyrone McKenzie and Harrison Smith, along with Vikings cheerleaders and Viktor the Viking.
Players and cheerleaders will be signing autographs for participants. The event is $30 in advance and $35 the day of the event. The cost is $10 for kids 10 and under in advance, $15 the day of, to participate in the kids fun run. All pre-registered participants are guaranteed a free t-shirt.
Advance registration is taking place at the Minneapolis Parks web site.
STADIUM AUTHORITY NAMED
Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton appointed his deputy chief of staff Michele Kelm-Helgen as the chair of the new Vikings Stadium Authority. She will serve alongside John Griffith and Duane Benson as the state's representatives on the stadium's oversight committee. The Vikings have been anxious for the committee to form so planning on the new stadium can begin, including taking requests for proposals.
Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak named Barbara Butts-Williams of Capella University and Bill McCarthy of Minneapolis Central Labor to the Stadium Authority.
The Stadium Authority will oversee the design, construction and financing of the new stadium.
MINICAMP SCHEDULE SET
The Vikings announced their mandatory minicamp camp schedule for next week. The team will hold morning walk-throughs and afternoon practices on Tuesday and Wednesday and a final morning practice on Thursday before breaking until the start of training camp in Mankato. Players are scheduled to report to training camp on July 26.
Minicamp practices are not open to the public, but VikingUpdate.com will have daily coverage.
