Playworks, the Denver Broncos, and CarMax teamed up to create an inspiring day for play at Maxwell Elementary and Greenwood Academy. Denver Bronco wide receiver Demaryius Thomas jumped into recess alongside Denver Broncos cheerleaders and Miles the Mascot at Maxwell Elementary to create an active and exciting playground.
Magic Tag was a recess favorite for everyone. In Magic Tag, you designate two taggers and everyone else is to get tagged. Your goal is to not get tagged and if you do get tagged, you are to remain frozen until two other participants, unfreeze you with their “magic.” It is a fun game that you can play with many age groups. Demaryius Thomas and volunteers didn’t stop playing.
Broncos’ safety Justin Simmons, wide receiver Isaiah McKenzie, and safety Will Parks were present at Greenwood Academy partnering up with Playworks’ Coach K. to run a fantastic recess. All students, players, and volunteers were sweating when they were done playing.
The games that were most popular were Magic Tag, foursquare, knock out, and wall ball. To see how these games are played, check out our Game Guide.
CarMax volunteers championed play, jumping into it all. CarMax also donated 200 Broncos Bunch Memberships to Maxwell and Greenwood 5th graders. Every 5th grader went home with a certificate to welcome them to the membership along with a Broncos Bunch Tee-shirt. Throughout the football season, they should expect fun prizes.
