According to NBC Green Bay affiliate JRN, in a hard-to-miss moment (at least for the citizens of Green Bay, Wisconsin) a flash mob took place on Thursday July 17 directly outside of historic Lambeau Field, the home of the National Football League's Green Bay Packers. The mob, which featured people dressed in pink, dancing and running through the stadium's parking lots, is part of a new campaign aimed at raising breast cancer awareness. The effort represents a joint venture between three organizations: the Green Bay Packers, Bellin Health and the Ribbon of Hope Foundation.
The flash mob happened as a part of a competition in which organizations competed for a $15,000 prize, which will be given in the form of a charitable donation toward the Ribbon of Hope Foundation. Local to Green Bay, the Ribbon of Hope Foundation provides assistance to women with breast cancer in both monetary and emotional capacities. Videos of the flash mob are being submitted to judges on behalf of Bellin Health.
This is not the only breast cancer-centric endeavor involving the Green Bay Packers. According to a press release, the team recently renewed a partnership with American Family Insurance for 10 years. The two organizations have an annual "breast cancer cap" night during a home game to raise money and awareness for the disease.Whizzco
