Aaron Rodgers

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was honored Thursday for his commitment to end childhood cancer and blood disorders.

Rodgers was awarded an honorary doctorate for his commitment to helping children facing cancer.  The future Hall of Famer has worked with both the Medical College of Wisconsin as well as the Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer Fund. Rodgers has helped raise $2.8 million for research impacting thousands of lives and he continues to give hope to children with his support of the MACC Fund.

Thank you so much to the @medicalcollegeofwi for giving me the Honorary Degree of Doctor of Humanities. This is a special recognition for me, and I’m very thankful to the @maccfund for the opportunity to work alongside them in the fight against Childhood Cancer. Thank you to Jon McGlocklin and John Cary for their leadership and vision to make a difference everyday, and to the amazing kids and their families for the inspiration to raise funds and awareness, to aid in this fight. The work is not done, and we will continue to press on toward our goal of giving these kids a chance to live a healthy life. Thank you to all the fans, supporters and donors who have aided our efforts! Lastly, congratulations to the students who will be graduating tomorrow from the Medical College of Wisconsin. #honored #
