Lambeau Field is ready for Sunday’s Packers-Falcons game, which will recognize participants in the Fuel Up to Play 60 program.
Sunday will also continue featuring the annual NFL-wide “My Cause, My Cleats” initiative to highlight causes and charities important to players through custom-designed cleats. Several Packers players are participating in the initiative, and their causes and their cleats will be showcased on packers.com. For more information about My Cause, My Cleats, please visit nfl.com/mycausemycleats.
Two featured alumni are scheduled to make appearances Sunday; Keith Jackson and Aaron Taylor will be taking part in fan activities at surprise locations around Lambeau Field and Legends Club, respectively, leading up to kickoff.
During pregame, the Packers will recognize several dozen kids participating in the Fuel Up to Play 60 program, in partnership with the Dairy Farmers of Wisconsin, who will be introduced and run through the tunnel and onto the field.
The pregame festivities will also honor Hailey Cousland from Oconomowoc, Wis., as the “Shopko Kick-Off Kid.” The 9-year-old planned and facilitated a cancer walk to raise money for cancer research. Learn more about Shopko's Kids Making a Difference at shopko.com/kickoffkid.
