Pro Bowl safety T.J. Ward is doing a "Boss of the Month" campaign in October to encourage fans to #BossUp and be a leader in their communities.
Fans just need to post pictures of them stepping up in their communities to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or Google+ and use the hashtag #BossUp.
Ward will choose one winner on Oct. 31 who has stepped up the most in his/her community and reward him or her with tickets to a regular season home game as well an autographed 8x10 photo.

Ward earned the nickname "Boss" while playing at the University of Oregon where he showed leadership qualities on and off the football field - something he has continued doing in the NFL.
Since being drafted by the Browns in 2010 and acquired by the Broncos via free agency last year, the second-year Bronco has been very active in the communities of Cleveland, Denver and his hometown of San Francisco.
Recently, Ward founded the T.J. Ward Foundation, benefitting multiple organizations that empower young men and women in underprivileged communities.This opportunity has given him a chance to give back to organizations including Purpose2Play, Boys and Girls Clubs of America and the Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children among others.
Ward was named AFC Defensive Player of the Week after his outstanding performance in Week 4 against the Vikings where he posted six tackles, two sacks and one forced fumble.
