Packers vs. Cancer
PACKERS VS. CANCER PRESENTED BY BELLIN HEALTH BENEFITING 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 for the fifth year 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 2021, features a variety of fundraising efforts, including the sale of two Packers vs. Cancer hats available for purchase at the Packers Pro Shop. Each hat sold will result in a $5 donation directly to the Vince Lombardi Cancer Foundation. Additionally, there will be 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 as well. Those who donate will have the opportunity to put their name on a special card that will be displayed in the Pro Shop from September 23 through the month of October.
As part of the ongoing Packers vs. Cancer initiative, the Packers and Bellin Health together will recognize cancer survivors and the ongoing fight against cancer at the October 3 Packers-Steelers game at Lambeau Field. On gameday, the Packers, Bellin Health and the Vince Lombardi Cancer Foundation will celebrate and recognize survivors during the game through various videoboard promotions. Fans in attendance will be able to show their support with the Packers vs. Cancer rollabanner giveaway, which encourages fans to Join the Fight.
Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy was among the key speakers in the 2021 Packers vs. Cancer campaign press conference. Bellin Health President & CEO Chris Woleske, Board member with the Vince Lombardi Cancer Foundation Ben Haas, and Packers alumni and Hall of Famer Nick Collins were in attendance.
