The MN Vixen are going to the Legacy Bowl!

The Minnesota Vixen are honored to be chosen to play in the first ever Legacy Bowl on Friday, July 25 in Rock Hill, SC!

But these dedicated women who make up the Vixen need your help!

The host of the Legacy Bowl, the Women’s Football Foundation, invited the MN Vixen to play in the first ever Legacy Bowl not only because of their winning performance on the field but for their off the field presence as well. For 15 years the women of the Vixen have been trailblazers in the sport and are well known for their integrity and dedication in the women’s tackle football community.

Now the team needs to raise funds in order to travel to Rock Hill, South Carolina to continue the tradition. Every dollar really does make a difference, so please donate and help your MN Vixen bring home the Inaugural Legacy Bowl Championship!!

On behalf of all the MN Vixen players and staff, a big thank you!
