“We have the best memories from camp. Camp friends ‘get it’. The experience healed me in a way that medicine didn’t.”

MY Cause, MY Cleats

The Northwestern Mutual Foundation teamed up with Aaron Jones, running back for the Green Bay Packers to spotlight Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation and the fight against childhood cancer through the NFL’s My Cause, My Cleats campaign. On December 6 against the Philadelphia Eagles, Aaron Jones honored Ethan Haley, a strong and joyful 12-year-old who heroically battled Anaplastic Ependymoma since 2018, through a unique set of cleats designed by Ethan himself. Ethan’s design seemed to bring a little bit of magic to the game, too. In the cleats, Jones rushed for a career-high 77-yard touchdown to secure the win for the Packers.

Sadly, Ethan passed away on December 20, 2020. On Sunday, January 24, 2021 Fox Sports highlighted his inspirational story before the Packers game. Fox Sports highlight >
