Happy Wednesday, Broncos Country.

Many of us will celebrate Thanksgiving tomorrow with family and friends. The company will be enjoyed, the food will be divine and as always, football will be on the television. It is a day where we can take a step back and relax, which allows us to give thanks and appreciation for all the blessings in life.

For this installment of Horse Tracks, I'd like to point you all in the direction of an amazing article done by the staff of Mile High Sports that outlines the various charities players of the Broncos organization have developed or are a part of.

As sports writers, we often get caught up in all the hype and drama surrounding the NFL season and sometimes lose perspective on the important things that matter.  Alas, it is always refreshing to see feel good articles such as the one above that give proper acknowledgement to good deeds and causes done on behalf of NFL players within their communities, especially our beloved Broncos.

With that said, here is a big Mile High salute to all the Denver Broncos players who have dedicated much of their time off the field to ensuring holistic wellness in the lives of so many within the Denver community and beyond. Thank you for representing the franchise well both on the field and off the field.

I would also like to thank all the loyal fans and readers of Mile High Report and wish you all the very bests this Thanksgiving and holiday season. You play an integral role in keeping the foundation of the community strong and I am appreciative and impressed by the quality of dialogue you all give on a daily basis.  Thank you so much!

Be well, be blessed and have a great rest of your week.  Don't be shy about telling us what you are thankful for or some of your most memorable holiday moments in the comments section. Take care!
