Marshfield, WI (OnFocus) The Green Bay Packers surprised the Marshfield High School athletic program with a $2,500 check Wednesday morning.
In a ceremony at Marshfield High School, former Packers players drove home a message on the importance of perseverance in pursuing goals despite obstacles.
“The important thing is you stay focused on what you want to achieve. Always stay focused on the controllables,” said Scott Wells. “You endure that tragedy and you use that to toughen you to move forward to what it is you want to accomplish. When you’re going through that event in life you don’t often understand why. Sometimes I don’t think we’re designed to understand why. I think the important thing is we use that to strengthen us.”
Former players Scott Wells, Earl Dotson, Aaron Kampman, Nick Barnett, Ryan Grant and Bernardo Harris are traveling in a custom-wrapped motor coach for the Green Bay Packers Tailgate Tour. Since Tuesday, they have made a series of stops in Marshfield including the Children’s Hospital visiting patients and a tailgate party benefiting PDC Orenda Center.
The donation comes the same day as an groundbreaking ceremony for the athletic facility at Marshfield High School.
The players will move onto Sparta on Wednesday.
