About Forever 52

When over 10,000 people volunteered to serve as ambassadors representing Minnesota, they had no idea just what an exhilarating and satisfying experience they signed up for. Some made new friends, some enjoyed an experience not to be duplicated, and everybody felt the positive energy and enthusiasm that surrounded them wherever they went. In a moment of reflection, one of the volunteers offered a wishful thought on Facebook: “It would be nice to be able to continue this feeling.” The post struck a chord and within days, 1,900+ fellow Super Bowl volunteers responded a resounding “YES!” and Forever 52 became reality. Individuals, from around the region, came together as a diverse and multi-talented community, ready and eager to connect with organizations and events needing willing hands and hearts.
