GREEN BAY, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Fans are a big part of the training camp experience in Green Bay.

One special tradition is now known as the dream drive, where Packers players hitch rides on bikes supplied by local kids.

For Jemma Blechacz of Fox Point, training camp is where she got her wheels.

5-year-old Jemma lives with Spina Bifida, and on Thursday she was given a new adaptive bike -- her first one, thanks to American Family Insurance and the Packers.

"It's a big deal for her to be able to bike with everybody else. To be able to bike with the whole family. I think she's pretty excited for all of the event today and so are her siblings."

Jemma rode to the first practice Thursday with Packers kicker Mason Crosby, who rode an adaptive bike of his own.
