Packers QB Aaron Rodgers has lent his support to the “Gold in September” campaign. The mission of “Gold in September,” a month in which people are encouraged to wear gold, is to raise awareness and inspire action for childhood cancer initiatives. Gold is the official color for pediatric cancer awareness month, September.
The campaign was started by Annie Bartosz, an 11-year-old from Hartland whose twin brother Jack lost his fight with cancer two years ago. Rodgers had become close with Jack after meeting through the MACC Fund, a Midwest-based charity dedicated to funding childhood cancer and related blood disorder research.
