The Best Thing I’ve Seen Today: Chris Kluwe Rolls a Mile in Someone Else’s Wheels

by rferron

Vikings punter, Chris Kluwe, is best known off the field as the unofficial spokesperson for marriage equality. Well, it seems Kluwe has the fight for justice in his blood, as he has now joined efforts to pass the Jablonski/Rodreick SCI TBI Research Bill.

A video of Kluwe spending a day in a wheelchair went viral last weekend on Vimeo, in hopes that the punter will give the legislation a kick in the right direction. The cause aims to raise awareness about Spinal Cord Injury by petitioning for funding to research a cure. (via Cities 97.1 radio station and Secrets of the City.)
