Milwaukee, Wis. – Green Bay Packers players Quay Walker, Romeo Doubs, Devonte Wyatt and Zach Tom visited patients and families at the Children’s Wisconsin

Milwaukee Hospital. Their visit was part of the Packers vs. Cancer initiative.  During the visit, the players played games and did crafts with patients and families in the Child Life Center while some kids from the MACC Fund Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders joined in on the fun via Zoom. They competed in the game Cranium with a football theme, played flick football, did a football toss and colored. The players also took pictures and signed autographs for those who stopped by and for the kids who joined in virtually.

“Visits like today’s from the Packers are so special and help kids feel like kids while they are under our care,” said Christine Baranoucky, vice president of engagement & stewardship for Children’s Wisconsin. “When kids are dealing with illness, they welcome a break from treatment to have the opportunity to see players from some of their favorite teams. We are so thankful for the Packers’ partnership and all they do to help kids and families in our community.
