WISCONSIN RAPIDS - Ever wanted to be up close and personal with the Packers? Today fans had that chance in Wisconsin Rapids. It was the team's final stop on their Tailgate Tour. Every visit is a fundraiser for an area charity.

This one was for Opportunity Development Centers. They help people with disabilities work and succeed.

Over 1,000 Packer fans were at Witter Field.

Packers President Mark Murphy was on hand. So were current players Randall Cobb, Alex Green, and Jarret Bush. Former Packer greats Santana Dotson, Frank Winters and Aaron Taylor were there too.

The team answered questions from fans and also signed autographs.
The Packers were happy to meet fans and make a difference.
