MINNEAPOLIS (KMSP) - Cole Fitzgerald is a 13-year-old Philadelphia Eagles fan from New Jersey. He’s also a cancer survivor who has battled neuroblastoma since he was three, along with other health issues.
Cole is arriving in Minnesota on Friday with Super Bowl tickets donated by an anonymous Minnesota Vikings fan who found a story online about the 8th grade Eagles fan managing his school’s football team.
The Vikings fan won the tickets at a charity raffle but contacted Spare Key, a group that helps families with sick children, to donate the tickets. He told the organization he’s a diehard Vikings fan, but there’s “no way” he could go to the Super Bowl.
Travel costs to Minneapolis were donated by Delta Airlines and Country Inn and Suites.
