Kill Launches "Chasing Dreams," Completes Busy Day

May 16, 2014

Minnesota football coach Jerry Kill had a busy Thursday.

After morning meetings, Kill and his wife Rebecca launched “Chasing Dreams” with the Epilepsy Foundation of Minnesota. The fund will help support Camp Oz, which is a one-week residential camp for youth with epilepsy, and Seizure Smart Schools, an ongoing platform that strives to make the school environment the best possible for students with seizures.

Kill then went to Target Field as the Twins (who beat Boston) helped promote Rise Above Seizures Day to throw out the first pitch with Travis Boyum. Boyum had successfully got his school to become a Seizure Smart School.

Kill then jaunted back to campus where he donned a cap and gown to give the commencement address for the College of Education + Human Development at Mariucci Arena.

His night then ended as the keynote speaker for the Bolder Options gala, as they celebrated 20 years.
