Hi Broncos Country!
Last week was busy around here…the first full week of training camp was well underway but we also had a lot going on in the community too!
On Tuesday, Broncos Wives: Amber Bailey, Julie Leach, Eyamide Garrett (Cecil Sapp’s fiance), Richelle Scheffler, Lana Stokley, Kallie Mustard and Kristyn Bly all gathered at the Denver Rescue Mission’s The Crossing facility to chaparone a trip for 20 youngsters residing at The Crossing to the Museum of Nature and Science and IMAX Theatre! The group departed by bus and arrived just in time to see the IMAX Film: Coral Reefs.
Following the film, the group all gathered in the museum’s cafeteria for some fun boxed lunches and a surprise visit from Miles who brought along Cold Stone ice cream for everyone! After lunch the group dispersed in small groups throughout the museum to take in all of the exhibits. What great day it was for the children of The Crossing and from the feedback of the Broncos Wives it sounded like they had just as much fun!
On Wednesday, Broncos Senior Vice President of Administration and General Counsel Rich Slivka along with Cindy Kellogg, Billy Thompson and myself made our way to Rangeview High School in Aurora to help them celebrate their new field dedication as part of our NFL Youth Football Fund grant–a program under the Broncos Community Fields Project for 2008.
The district was able to refurbish the field and put in artificial turf creating a long-lasting and high quality field for many of the youth and high school teams to enjoy!
A special thanks to all the Aurora staff we worked with throughout the granting process including Tony Antolini, Tammye Pirie, Paula Hans and Tim Stanford. We are very proud to be a part of this project and are excited for Rangeview and other Aurora teams to begin utilizing their new state-of-the-art field!
Whew! What a week…and just around the corner is Broncos Bowl! That’s right! Our celebration of youth football in the form of a state-wide scrimmage takes place this Saturday, August 9th from 8 a.m.-4 p.m. at INVESCO Field at Mile High and is FREE and open to the public! We’ll report more on that next week. Until then!
