Packers visit Children’s Hospital in Neenah

The group made another surprise stop, this one at Children’s Hospital in Neenah, Wis.

After a tasty lunch at Zuppas in Neenah…”I’ll have a Southwestern Randall Cobb Salad,” said Cobb, to eye rolls of his Tailgate Tour mates…the group made another surprise stop, this one at Children’s Hospital in Neenah, Wis.

The organization is the only hospital in the Fox Valley exclusively dedicated to the care of kids, and is affiliated with Children’s Hospital in Milwaukee.

For about an hour, the group visited with children who are receiving treatments for various illnesses. The guys also had a chance to show their creative side when we helped them with a tile craft project.

The guys dropped in on a few rooms to visit with patients and families, too. A particularly fun stop was in the room of Christian Hetchler, a young twin who has been in the hospital since being born prematurely in late December with his brother, Thomas. Christian has remained in the hospital as he grows stronger, soon to join his brother, Thomas, at home.

Christian’s mom, Sarah, asked Cobb if he’d like to hold the youngster. Cobb obliged with a big smile.

“It was amazing to have these guys visit our room,” Sarah said. “It’s great that they take the time to engage with the fans. My husband’s name is Randy, so he’ll get a kick out of this.”

In addition to the patients’ rooms and the common area, the group visited a rehab center and encouraged patients going through various exercises.
