Minnesota Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph won the NFL's Walter Payton Man of the Year Challenge.

The social media challenge encouraged fans to post #WPMOYChallenge and their favorite nominee's last name, the player with the most hashtags won $25,000 for their charity.

Rudolph will donate the money to the University of Minnesota Masonic Children’s Hospital where he built 'Kyle Rudolph’s End Zone', a  special space within the hospital that allows patients and parents to relax and enjoy a variety of activities.

The NFL will name the Walter Payton Man of the Year during the 'NFL Honors' broadcast the night before the Super Bowl.

According to the NFL, "$500,000 will be donated in the name of the 2018 winner. $250,000 will be donated in his name to expand Character Playbook, the NFL and United Way's digital character education program. An additional donation of $250,000 will be donated to the charity of his choice."
