Zane Beadles and his teammates on the Broncos offensive line make their living pancaking defenders on the field.
Now, they’ll trade the pancake blocks for actual pancakes in the name of providing “safe-clean” homes for children recovering from life-saving surgeries.
Zane’s Parade – Beadles’ foundation – will host its “Cakes for Cancer” pancake breakfast on Sunday, September 8th from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at Denver’s Exdo Events Center.
The event – which will give fans in attendance the opportunity to meet and challenge Beadles and the rest of the offensive line in a pancake-eating competition – will donate 100 percent of its proceeds to Brent’s Place, the only “safe-clean” housing facility in the Rocky Mountain region approved by Denver area children’s hospitals.
The event will also include a White Elephant silent auction, an elephant cakewalk, and photo opportunities with Beadles and other offensive linemen – a full assortment of fun events and NFL stars who will tackle stacks of pancakes for a good cause.
Brent’s Place helps children recovering from life-saving cancer treatments, and their families, by providing environments that are free of common viruses, bacteria and germs for the children to stay during their recovery process. The children and their families stay free of charge at Brent’s Place, helping alleviate some of the financial burden that their families face.
“Safe-clean” environments are critical for children recovering from treatments like bone marrow transplants because the immune systems of affected children are particularly vulnerable during the recovery process.
Since 2011, Zane’s Parade has raised more than $50,000 for families at Brent’s Place.
It’s expected that the event will quickly sell out, so it’s recommended that fans purchase their tickets as soon as possible.
