Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy and his wife, Jessica, stopped in Madison on Sunday to announce their participation in the American Family's Children's Hospital's "Sick Kids Can't Wait" campaign.
The couple will be honorary chairs of the campaign. The money raised will go toward the hospital's expansion. Organizers said that two floors, 26 critical care beds, along with a lot of other pediatric features will be added over the next couple of years.
McCarthy said that he welcomes any way he can help out.
"It's a big day for our family. We're here to see the children and their families. We just can't say enough about the facility. The growth and development of this facility, and we're really excited to be part of the future," he said.
