June 9th marked the end of the first of what is anticipated to be an annual Be a Champion in the Community Week — a full week of roster-wide community service, while asking the community to get engaged as well.
Saturday’s service projects included four Habitat for Humanity home builds, led by the likes of two-time Walter Payton Man of the Year Wesley Woodyard, and featuring new home owners Frank and Shiane Wilson, who are Habitat ambassadors in the Broncos’ new “Be A Champion in the Community” campaign.
Players also made visits to partner HealthONE Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children and to both locations of the Ronald McDonald House, spreading cheer and goodwill to patients and families.
Two-time Walter Payton Man of the Year Champ Bailey remained committed to the Denver Rescue Mission, serving meals alongside other Broncos players to residents of The Crossing and Lawrence Street Shelter.
Broncos players could be seen elsewhere in town bagging groceries at partner King Soopers and serving up orders at the McDonald’s drive-thru. Von Miller even gave fans special commemorative Broncos glasses to fans at Arby’s.
In addition, Ryan Clady was serving up some mean frostys at Wendy’s and that Demaryius Thomas was great with the crowds at Red Robin.
Before the day came to an end, Broncos Bunch members were treated to a Chris Kuper-led summer kickoff at Sports Authority Field at Mile High. Also, youth football players honed their skills with Assistant Director of Pro Personnel Champ Kelly at his annual camp at All City Stadium in Denver.
Last but not least, Chipotle guests got a special treat with their burritos Saturday — warm hospitality served up by the Denver Broncos.
Looking forward to seeing you all next year, but in the mean time, we challenge Broncos Country, “What can you do to be a champion in our community?”
