The Packers Women's Association kicked off the opening football weekend by volunteering at the 2009 ASPIRO Awareness Walk on Saturday, Sept. 12th.
ASPIRO, a Green Bay organization that creates opportunities for people with disabilities to reach goals, connect community, and achieve independence, put on a fun event, full of life, for a great cause, and the PWA was proud to be a part of the Awareness Walk for the third year in a row.
The PWA was honored with the request to be the sole judges for the ASPIRO Chili Cook-Off, as part of the Awareness Walk. Courtney Finley, Emily Nelson, Diane Philbin, Karen Robinson, Ashley Green, and Laura Hawk had a great time meeting those attending the event and judging various chilies.
Laura Hawk has participated in the event two years in a row. When asked why she wanted to participate again this year, Hawk answered, "I love the ASPIRO foundation and feel that it has an excellent mission. I chose to participate again this year because I wanted to have a chance to meet more families, understand what they go through, and learn about their experience with ASPIRO."
The ASPIRO Awareness Walk represents one of the many community events the PWA is proud to assist. The PWA is committed to helping the community, and the members look forward to participating in many upcoming events throughout the Packers' season.
Megan Colledge, wife of Packers offensive lineman Daryn Colledge, will be providing regular updates on Packers.com of the many PWA events and activities throughout the 2009 season.
