Great Way to Celebrate Play

  1. Updates

Hometown Huddle was on Monday Oct. 9 and it was our best one yet!

Who showed? Over fourteen Boys & Girls Clubs from around the Denver Metro area, fourteen Broncos players, every Colorado Playworker, and of course, the power of play. The event was hosted at the very own Broncos practice field—UC Health Facility. Playworks had access to the entire field and set up fourteen different play stations. Our Coaches ran the show with inclusion in mind, making the event enjoyable for kids of all ages and abilities. Games included an impressive game of Switch with extra cones, Mountains & Valleys, Talley Hoe, and Ultimate Football, among many others. Safety Justin Simmons led groups of Switch while other players spread out to engage in other stations. It was a fantastic time for everyone involved to indulge in the power of play.

We also celebrated the tenth birthday of PLAY 60. What is Play 60? This campaign started by the NFL reminds us all that staying healthy and being physically active for 60 minutes a day is a key to helping reverse the trend of childhood obesity.  Happy birthday, PLAY 60!
