Post Event Photos: Packers 5K

Thank you to the 29 volunteers who helped staff the corners, to ensure a safe course for the 3,000 runners/walkers that took part in the inaugural Packers 5K event. The American Red Cross Lakeland Chapter was just one of six charties that will receive a portion of the proceeds from Saturday’s race.

Light rain, didn’t dampen the spirit of the volunteers or participants! Thanks again for your support! YOU ROCK!!!  

American Red Cross joins as a Charity Partner for the Packers 5K

Over 3,000 runners and walkers will kickoff training camp weekend by participating in the Packers 5K Run/Walk. Start from the Lambeau Field parking lot, run through side streets surrounding Lambeau Field, run around the rubber track of Lambeau Field and finish on a replica 50-yard line constructed in the parking lot!  

On Tuesday, the American Red Cross received the call that the Packers needed additional volunteers to assist with course corner safety. Within 24 hours we had 29 volunteer lined up to assist the Packers with this opportunity.

“What can I say, we have some of the best volunteers,” said Jody Weyers, Volunteer and Communications Director, American Red Cross Lakeland Chapter.

A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the following non-profit groups:

  American Red Cross Lakeland  Chapter

  Boys and Girls Club

  Big Brothers Big Sisters

  Volunteer Center of Green Bay


  Anxiety Disorder Foundation

  My Team Triumph
