Healthy, Safe Kids

The Hennepin County Step-to-It Challenge encourages residents and students to increase their physical activity. Hennepin County communities use Twins merchandise as an incentive to encourage participation, and schools vie for the opportunity to have an exercise session led by Twins trainers and players.

Stop Bullying

The Minnesota Twins take bullying seriously. The Twins believe there is no place for bullying in our schools, or in society as a whole. If you are being bullied, there is help available and you should not feel alone.
