Lambeau Field ready for Monday Night Football game against 49ers
GREEN BAY, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Lambeau Field is ready for Monday’s Packers-49ers game, the team’s Packers Vs. Cancer game. The Packers Vs. Cancer effort, which is aimed at raising awareness of all cancers and raising funds to battle the disease, runs throughout the month of October.
Monday’s game will recognize those who have battled and continue to battle cancer and will honor survivors on the field during the pregame Ambassador Line.
Grammy award-winning singer-songwriter and cancer survivor Melissa Etheridge will sing the national anthem, and will perform on the field during halftime.
Game attendees will receive a Packers Vs. Cancer flag when entering the stadium.
Two featured alumni are scheduled to make appearances Monday; Nate Wayne and Na’il Diggs will be taking part in fan activities at surprise locations around Lambeau Field and in the Legends Club, respectively, leading up to kickoff.
Prior to the national anthem, the Packers and WPS Health Solutions will be recognizing Dustin Crane and his guests through Operation Fan Mail on the field.
The pregame festivities will also honor Jaylee Ziemer from Manitowoc, Wis., as the “Shopko Kick-Off Kid.” She and her friends created “Backpack Buddies” to encourage the community to fill backpacks for children in foster care in Manitowoc County.
