Broncos join Playworks for Be a Champion in the Community Week

  1. Updates

The Denver Broncos kicked off Be a Champion in the Community Week by joining Playworks and students at Whittier Elementary and DCIS-Ford out at the playground.

Broncos players Mario Butler, Joel Dreessen, Ben Garland, Malik Jackson, Steven Jackson, Quentin Saulsberry, Sealver Siliga, Omar Bolden, Tony Carter, Greg Orton and Gerell Robinson brought tons of energy and came ready to play!

The players spilt up between the two schools and played various games with the students.  Games were led by Playworks coaches or Junior Coaches, with the Broncos players stepping up and running some games themselves.

Tight end Joel Dreesssen’s message to the students was something Playworks fully believes in; “It’s important to stay active. Stay off the cell phones, stay away from the video games – there is a lot of fun to be had outside.”

We want to thank the Denver Broncos for coming to visit our schools and encouraging a healthy lifestyle and promoting play.  Your impact on the community is far-reaching and we are proud to be your partner!
