Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph recently led 30 kids on the trip of a lifetime.

The children are patients at the University of Minnesota Masonic hospital. He flew them to the "North Pole" to see Santa, the elves and all the reindeer.

Rudolph said, “When your last name is ‘Rudolph’ what better thing to do for a bunch of kids than take them to the North Pole? Actually being here now, it’s far exceeded my expectations. What they’ve been able to do with this place, the trip over, the reindeer, Santa Claus is making his entrance soon – it’s been pretty incredible.”
