Green Bay Packers wide receiver has signed on to become an ambassador and raise awareness for the Jockey Being Family Foundation Ltd., a corporate initiative of Kenosha-based apparel company Jockey International Inc.

Jockey Being Family provides resources and support to post-adoption organizations to help strengthen adoptive families once an adoption is finalized. Nelson, and his wife, Emily, recently grew their family through an adoption and are the proud parents of two boys.

“I am thrilled to join the Jockey Being Family team as they share the same values that are important to me and my family,” Nelson said in a press release. “Given my profession, I know I have a platform and responsibility to help others and this is a cause that I wanted to be involved in, to promote adoption and highlight the importance of post-adoption resources and services. Adoption is a great way to grow and have a family.”

As part of the relationship, Nelson will make appearances on behalf of Jockey Being Family, highlighted by the inaugural Jockey Being Family Gala and Golf in Lake Geneva on May 15-16.
