MINNEAPOLIS — Vikings linebacker Anthony Barr is a former first-round draft pick and made his first Pro Bowl for his play during the 2015 season.
Yet despite all of Barr’s football accomplishments, Lori Barr was most proud of her son for what he did Monday night for single mothers in the Twin Cities community.
The linebacker’s Raise the Barr foundation hosted its first holiday party and fundraiser at a downtown hotel as a way to give back to a cause near and dear to the Barr family.

RAISE THE BARR was founded by Anthony and his mother, Lori Barr, with the mission to provide financial support to single mothers wishing to further their education.
Assisting these mothers in their efforts to overcome poverty and difficult financial circumstances has the potential to change the trajectory of their lives and the lives of their children for the better.
On the Vikings day off Anthony Barr had a great time in the child development center at Jeremiah Program with the kids reading, playing and spending the afternoon! Thanks for this fun experience!" #momstrong #singlemoms
