GREEN BAY -- Green Bay Packers Training Camp starts on Thursday, July 25, kicking off old traditions with a special twist.
Every year, youthful Packers fanatics ride their bikes to Ray Nitschke Field to watch the players practice – and hope one of the players will ride back with them at the end of the day. The Packers teamed up with American Family Insurance and the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Green Bay to make this year's ride extra memorable.
On Thursday, Mason Crosby will ride on a special Packers-themed adaptive bike with a specially designed wheel that uses the rider’s hands and arms to pedal. Crosby will be alongside Jemma Blechacz, a 5-year-old from Fox Point who will ride her own adaptive bike created especially for her.
