GREEN BAY, Wis. (WFRV)--The number 12 has a little more meaning in Title Town and that could be seen all around town as people paid homage to their favorite quarter back.
"Aaron Rodgers Day," was passed by the Wisconsin legislature in March, making December 12, 2012, number 12's Day.
Children and adults alike donned their number 12 jerseys Wednesday to pay homage to the QB.
"It's exciting, i want to thank all the kids wearing my jerseys today, also to the ones who aren't as well," said Aaron Rodgers after practice on Wednesday, "it's a special thing, I appreciate the recognition from Governor Walker and the folks that started the face book page that liked it enough to gain some recognition."
In honor of his day the NFL MVP is asking fans to donate $12 dollars to the MACC fund, a childhood cancer organization he works closely with.
"It's my opportunity with the platform I've been given to make a different but I'm just one part of it," said Rodgers, "it takes a lot of people who have a heart for what we are trying to do, donating money donating their time to try and give these kids a chance at a normal life or a few more days with their loved ones."
