PACKERS VS. CANCER
lambeau field – Green Bay, WI | sunday, October 22
Joining the effort is the Packers’ official health care partner, Bellin Health, which will sponsor the Oct. 22 Packers-Saints 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.
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 available for purchase at the Packers Pro Shop starting Oct. 10, with $5 from each hat sale going directly to the Vince Lombardi Cancer Foundation.
More details about the campaign will be announced soon, including details of how fans and supporters can participate through a “text-to-donate” effort. Additionally, campaign spokesperson, Packers kicker Mason Crosby, will take part in a public service announcement and several Packers players will visit cancer patients in the hospital as a part of the initiative throughout the season.
