MILWAUKEE, WI. — Green Bay Packers legend, Donald Driver, was the guest of honor on Friday, May 1, where he surprised Kohl’s employees at the Kohl’s corporate office at Milwaukee’s Veterans Park. Donald’s heartfelt speech made an impact on the the audience pumping up the crowd before Saturday’s “Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk.” The Superbowl champ, who lost both his father and best friend to cancer, said he is just happy to be able to use his public platform to contribute to the cancer fight.

“When you have family that goes through this, you see the ups and downs they go through every single day. It makes you want to continue to fight for them, take some of the pressure off them and put it on your own back. We have to be one team to make sure that day will come where we can say it’s all over and we found a cure for cancer,” Driver said.

Kohl’s spokeswoman, Bevin Bailis, says the company has donated more than $7 million since partnering with the American Cancer Society in 2010. She says having someone with Driver’s star power stop by only helps fuel the excitement for Saturday’s walk. “We all really dream about the day when we no longer have to have walks like this — because breast cancer is no longer something that any woman should ever have to think about again.”
