Green Bay Packers offensive linemen Kevin Barry and William Whitticker spent Thursday afternoon at Denmark Elementary School, celebrating the children's fundraising abilities.
The students at the 500-person school, located outside Green Bay, Wis., collected $10,500 for the American Heart Association by accepting pledges for their "Jump Rope for Heart" program. That total represents the largest amount the school has raised through their annual program.
To commemorate that achievement, Barry and Whitticker spent almost two hours at the school. The linemen went to classrooms, congratulating the children on their effort and urging them to keep reading.
The Packers then served a lunch of macaroni and cheese, hamburgers, hot dogs and cookies to the kids and played outside with them during the mid-60 degree day. Barry tossed a football around while Whitticker led a game of kickball.
