PACKERS VS. CANCER

lambeau field – Green Bay, WI | monday, October 15

Joining the effort is the Packers’ official health care partner, Bellin Health, which will sponsor the Oct. 15 Packers-49ers game at Lambeau Field. The Packers and Bellin Health will recognize cancer survivors on the field during the pregame Ambassador Line, the national anthem and halftime activities. Game attendees can also show their support with the game giveaway banner, which will have a place for fans to write the name of someone they know who has been affected by cancer.


Cancer touches the lives of so many families and individuals in our community and we’ve heard from a lot of people over the years who have battled cancer themselves. We’re proud to show our support by working with Bellin Health and the Vince Lombardi Cancer Foundation to increase awareness and raise funds for all cancers during the month of October.

The initiative, which will run throughout the month of October, also will feature a variety of fundraising efforts, including the sale of a cancer awareness hat now available for purchase at the Packers Pro Shop, with $5 from each hat sale going directly to the Vince Lombardi Cancer Foundation.

The initiative, which will run from now throughout the month of October, also will feature a variety of fundraising efforts, including an opportunity for shoppers at the Packers Pro Shop to contribute by adding $1 or more to their purchase that will go directly to the Vince Lombardi Cancer Foundation. Additionally, Packers linebacker Blake Martinez, the spokesperson for the initiative, took part in a PSA, which will air in October throughout Wisconsin, reminding fans how they can be a part of Packers Vs. Cancer. Several Packers players will also join the effort, visiting cancer patients in the hospital and meeting with survivors as part of the initiative throughout the season.


We’re beyond grateful for this amazing partnership with the Green Bay Packers organization and Bellin Health. Vince Lombardi said that ‘people who work together will win’ and together, through Packers Vs. Cancer, we will be one step closer to winning the battle against cancer.
