Greetings Bronco Fans! The holidays are upon us which means it is time for the Denver Bronco Cheerleaders 4th Annual “Cheer for the Troops” Charity. I’m sure you are asking yourself “What is Cheer for the Troops?” and “Why haven’t I heard of it before?” To answer your questions, “Cheer for the Troops” began three years ago, and was inspired by my husband, Josh’s, 15-month deployment to Iraq in 2006.
But I am getting ahead of myself. First off, who am I? Hi everyone. My name is Jenn Woodworth. I am a former Denver Bronco Cheerleader (2006-2009), and am currently heading up “Cheer for the Troops”. I am working side-by-side with my best friend, and one of your current Denver Bronco Cheerleaders, Brianne Bateman.
Now back to your questions. “Cheer for the Troops” is a charity that as cheerleaders we have founded and participated in to bring “cheer” to our military men and women deployed for the holidays. We collect goodies, letters, and Broncos gear to make fun holiday gift packages. It is just our way of saying thank you to all of the men and women who sacrifice their lives to protect us here at home.
As the wife of a soldier, I know first hand how difficult it is to be away from your loved one, especially around the holidays. I would just like to take a moment to personally say thank you to all of our military and to their families. We are so grateful for you and your service.
