The Denver Broncos, like every NFL team, contribute time off to the community. Now the team has added another partnership to further contribute to the Colorado community.

The Broncos have announced that the franchise have reached a new partnership with the Children’s Hospital Colorado in Aurora. The partnership will include patient visits from Broncos players, cheerleaders, and Miles the Mascot himself. The partnership also includes year-round community initiatives.

Children’s Colorado was founded in 1908 and is acknowledged as one of the nation’s Top-10 children’s hospitals. This move will make the hospital a founding partner of the Broncos’ Health and Wellness initiative as well as engage with local high school football programs and significant exposure of Children’s Colorado at Sports Authority Field at Mile High.

To announce the new partnership between the Denver Broncos and Children’s Colorado, both parties are kicking off with a pep rally and the first patient visits. It all starts at 10 am MT. The event itself will not be open to the public. The media will be partaking in the event as they meet with Public Relations representatives from Children’s Colorado.

This is quite a partnership for the Broncos franchise. This will do wonders for the Colorado community for both parties involved. Broncos President and CEO Joe Ellis had this to say about the partnership.

“This relationship is built on courage and inspiration, and we look forward to having a positive impact on many people at Children’s Colorado and throughout this community.”

This is a huge step for both parties involved. Educating the minds of Colorado as well as making an impact in the community in another way further proves that this team takes pride in spending time with the individuals in the community. Another step in the right direction for the Denver Broncos and the people involved to make this possible.
