4-year-old Francis Kahle dreams big with the Packers and American Family Insurance at DreamDrive


Francis Kahle may have big challenges in his life, but that doesn’t diminish his spirit.

Francis Kahle doesn’t see himself as disabled, just differently abled.

Francis inspires everyone he meets. And, he dreams fearlessly. For Francis, this means being an astronaut when he grows up.

On Thursday, July 26, Francis joined the Green Bay Packers in DreamDrive – the American Family branded, quarter-mile stretch between the players’ locker room and practice field – where young fans lend players their bikes and run alongside them to the field. 

The event celebrated the official opening of the American Family Insurance DreamDrive and DreamZone training camp activities for the fifth year. American Family supplied a set of five custom bikes called the Dream Fleet, including an adaptive bike for Francis to ride. 

DreamDrive is part of American Family’s partnership with the Green Bay Packers because it shows how the organization supports the dreams of kids, big and small. It brings American Family’s brand promise to life – to inspire, protect and restore dreams.

Watch Francis' dream come to life. 

DreamDrive and DreamZone are both included in the partnership between the Packers and the Madison-based insurance company, which has partnered with the team since 2005. The partnership also includes the American Family Insurance Gate on the stadium’s east side, allowing fans easy access to the Atrium, 1919 Kitchen & Tap, the Packers Pro Shop and the Packers Hall of Fame.
