On November 17, 2022, Make-A-Wish announced the winners of their prestigious award. Winners are celebrities that go above and beyond in helping grant patients life-changing wishes. This Packers player continues to go to extra lengths on and off the field.

Since 2012, Green Bay Packers kicker Mason Crosby has been an ambassador for Make-A-Wish Wisconsin. He has also served as chair of the chapter’s gala committee. He also has a local promotion that donates $1,000 for every regular season field goal that he makes. That total is now over $300,000. Crosby continues to raise the bar when it comes to giving back to the community. When he’s not kicking field goals, he is auctioning off signed merchandise and spending time with kids when they visit. He is truly a role model in the professional world.
