To celebrate the NFL's 100th season, Commissioner Roger Goodell and Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot teamed up to encourage residents to help clean up their communities.

The 'Huddle for 100' was created to encourage fans to donate 100 minutes of their time to help clean up and beautify city parks.

The mayor, commissioner, and hundreds of volunteers participated in an event in Douglas Park Wednesday picking up trash and cleaning the park. The Chicago Parks Foundation and the Chicago Park District partnered with the city and the Bears to coordinate the event.

@ChicagoParks’ Superintendent Mike Kelly joined @chicagosmayor @nfl Commissioner Roger Goodell -- @NFL greats @leonardwheeler7 @orlando_pace_hof @johnnyrandle93 @marty_moore_58 to help plant over 5,000 native plants, mulch and spruce up #DouglasPark. @chicagobears are looking for volunteers to donate -- hours of their time to engage in community service projects in honor of 100 years of the @nfl & @chicagobears! Donate your time to help spruce up 14 parks this Sat., Sept. 7. . . . #nflhuddlefor100 #chicagobears #beardown #nfl #football #naturalareas #huddlefor100 #bears

During the event, Commissioner Goodell and Mayor Lightfoot surprised one lucky volunteer with the most incredible gift.

Diane Latiker is a life long Chicago volunteer whose generosity and kindness deserves to be recognized. Goodell and Lightfoot presented her with two tickets to next year's Super Bowl in Miami! 

Latiker was ecstatic and said, “You don’t do it for this. You do it because you’re supposed to, but when something like this happens, oh my God I’m going to enjoy it!”

Latiker's volunteerism caught the eye of not only her city's Mayor but the NFL commissioner (which is a huge feat within itself) and the gift she received is so well deserved! #GoodVibes
