The Minnesota Twins and MLB announced the community events that will be surrounding the 2014 MLB All Star festivities.

These events occur at all major sporting events during the week of the specific event, such as the Super Bowl, NBA/NHL All Star Game, Pro Bowl among others.

Its a great opportunity for the city that is hosting to not only give back to the community but show case their city through these great efforts.

I know personally from living in Minneapolis for over 5 years during my college days at the University of Minnesota that both St. Paul and Minneapolis have so much to offer in regards to community involvement.

This years events range from 5k runs to the unveiling of many community projects throughout the city.
