Jamaal Charles already getting involved with Denver community
New Denver Broncos running back Jamaal Charles is already getting himself involved with the community and making an impact…
There’s no denying Jamaal Charles is one of the ‘good guys’ in the NFL today, but for him to already be getting involved with the Denver community is a little more than impressive…
The Denver Broncos hosted a Play 60 All-Ability Clinic at the Pat Bowlen Fieldhouse, and Charles was among a number of his Broncos teammates — Trevor Siemian included — who took the time on Tuesday to invest in these young athletes and, as the t-shirts say, ‘Be a champion in the community.’
Charles knows first-hand the impact being in the Special Olympics can have on a child. When Charles was a kid, he won multiple gold medals in the Special Olympics as a track and field athlete.
In addition to teaching these kids some football drills, Charles and some of his Broncos teammates made their impact simply by having a presence at the event. Every video of this event is filled with smiles and everyone just having a blast. The message Charles sent was pretty simple:
“If you’ve got dreams, keep dreaming.”
Charles is wasting no time getting himself acclimated to life as a member of the Broncos. He donned the orange and blue for the first time (that any of us could see) and immediately has gotten his presence into the community, making an impact on these young Broncos fans and athletes.
The Denver Broncos are excellent when it comes to community involvement. No matter what time of year it is, it seems the Broncos are involved in something that is making a significant difference in the lives of others. The platform of being an NFL player is a powerful one, and it’s great as a fan of the team to see the players who don’t take it for granted.
