The inaugural Be a Champion in the Community Week was by all accounts a great success.
Eighty-eight percent of the roster participated in the week of community outreach, which ran from June 2 to June 9.
In all, 79 players participated in a total of 22 projects in the community, which included three Habitat for Humanity builds, serving meals at two Denver Rescue Mission locations, visits to two Ronald McDonald Houses, participating in the Denver Heart and Stroke Walk, visits to the Broncos Boys & Girls Club and the Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children and a Broncos Bunch Summer Kickoff for Kids at Sports Authority Field at Mile High.
Vice President of Community Development Cindy Kellogg said that in addition to the sheer number of players that participated, it was their professionalism as they helped out in the community in such a meaningful way that truly stood out.
The team expects the week to become an annual tradition, and in the mean time, the Broncos ask Broncos Country, “What can you do to be a champion in the community?”
