Minnesota defensive back Jabari Price is expected to cover a lot of ground in the secondary. It won't be close to the journey the Viking is currently making.
Price is currently making "The Walk of Hearts," a 1,300-mile trip from Pompano Beach, Florida, to Washingington, D.C. The purpose of the trek is to spread the awareness of childhood obesity.

Price and (his brother Dahrnaz) Tigner first became passionate about the issue of childhood obesity through First Lady Michelle Obama's "Let's Move" campaign. The brothers want to further her efforts and hope Obama will join the Walk of Hearts for the final mile in Washington, D.C. "We've seen Michelle Obama push awareness for the cause, and we're taking that next step ourselves," said Price, who recently became a first-time father. During the walk, Price and Tigner plan to meet and invite local children to participate in "The Mile of Hearts," where they'll have a chance to walk a mile with the brothers and learn more about a healthy lifestyle. The idea behind the activity is to show children that exercising and losing weight can be fun and a part of everyday life. "We will be taking stops along the way to raise awareness," Price said. "Exercising, riding bikes, doing the whole nine yards to promote this idea and show kids, 'If we can do it, you can do it.' We want them to just get out and play 60 minutes a day, whatever it takes."
Due to the Vikings' offseason training regimen, Price will walk more than 400 miles of the trip before leaving his brother.
"The health concerns, with diabetes and everything else like that, is [serious]," Price said. "I would hate to see a life taken at a young age. These are things we should be aware of as adults and help children to be aware of, too.
