Packers vs Cancer

Packers vs Cancer presented by Bellin Health benefitting the Vince Lombardi Cancer Foundation

The Packers vs Cancer initiative is aimed at raising awareness for all cancers. Together, the Packers, Bellin Health and the Vince Lombardi Cancer Foundation have teamed up in an effort to educate fans on the importance of early screening and detection, while working together to raise funds to help support the ongoing fight against cancer.

The Packers vs. Cancer initiative, which will run throughout the month of October, will feature a variety of fundraising efforts, including the sale of a Packers/Vince Lombardi-themed cancer awareness hat available for purchase at the Packers Pro Shop beginning October 10. Each hat sold will result in a $5 donation directly to the Vince Lombardi Cancer Foundation. Fans and supporters will also have the opportunity to help raise funds through a Text-to-Donate campaign that will take place from October 16th – 22nd. Additionally, campaign spokesperson, Packers kicker Mason Crosby, will take part in a public service announcement and several Packers players will visit cancer patients throughout the course of the season.

As part of the ongoing Packers vs. Cancer initiative, the Packers and Bellin Health will together recognize the ongoing fight against cancer at the October 22nd Packers-Saints game at Lambeau Field. On game day, the Packers, Bellin Health and the Vince Lombardi Cancer Foundation will celebrate and recognize cancer survivors on the field during pregame Ambassador Line, the national anthem and halftime activities. Fans in attendance will have the chance to show their support with a complimentary giveaway banner given out to all fans in attendance that will feature a place for fans to write the name of someone they know that has been impacted by cancer. Game attendees can also submit their game day photo using #PackersvsCancer for their chance to be on the video board at Lambeau Field.
