Among the fans cheering on the world champions at Lambeau Field New Year’s Day will be 35 fourth-graders from the Green Bay Packers Fit Kids wellness program.
Winners of the Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield Fit Kids Ticket Giveaway Contest, the students qualified for the chance to go to the game by submitting an essay or poster that described what they do to stay healthy.
Each winning student was awarded two tickets – one for them and one for a parent or guardian to accompany them to the game. In addition to the game ticket, the winners also received two passes to the Green Bay Packers’ MVP Party in the Tundra Tailgate Zone prior to the game, and a seat cushion that converts into a stadium blanket.
“Fit Kids is a part of Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield’s efforts to improve health throughout Wisconsin and ensure that our kids get off to a healthy start in life,” said Larry Schreiber, president of Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield in Wisconsin. “These students have demonstrated a commitment to healthy habits and we are thrilled to be able to recognize their efforts by sending them to the Packers game on New Year’s Day.”

About Fit Kids
Fit Kids was developed in 2004 by several educators in the Green Bay Area Public School District, with support from the Green Bay Packers, CBS 5 WFRV-TV and the Karma Group. Several other districts adopted the program for the 2005-06 school year and in 2006-07 the program rolled out statewide. Currently in its eighth year, Fit Kids has been adopted by nearly 340 public school districts in the state, with thousands of students receiving the benefit of the successful curriculum.
