Broncos Country to Go Purple in fight against Alzheimer’s Disease

New, comments

The Denver Broncos on Saturday will match all donations to the Alzheimer’s Association. Go Purple!

The Denver Broncos will be hosting an Alzheimer’s Awareness Day on Saturday and will match every single donation made to the Alzheimer’s Association. This is the kind of event we - Broncos Country - can all get behind.

Donate Here: http://act.alz.org/goto/broncoscountry

From the Broncos:

The Broncos and members of the Alzheimer’s Association Colorado Chapter will be giving away purple rally towels and bracelets at the Alzheimer’s Association tent. Fans are encouraged to stop by the tent, learn more about ways to support and make a donation as they enter practice.

The 29th annual Walk to End Alzheimer’s will take place at Denver City Park (2001 Colorado Blvd.) on Saturday, Sept. 15. The event annually draws close 10,000 participants and has set a goal of raising $1.35 million.

The ‘Broncos Country’ Walk to End Alzheimer’s team is a subset of ‘Team Super Bowlen’ and encourages Broncos fans to join the Bowlen Family and walk and/or fundraise to support Alzheimer’s programs and research. ‘Team Super Bowlen’ has raised more than $350,000 for the Alzheimer’s Association since its inception in 2014.

Many of us have either lost a loved one or have a loved one currently battling Alzheimer’s or dementia. This is one disease that hits close to home for so many of us and what better way to show support than to make a donation that you know another will match. That other being the Broncos.

Show your support and help Broncos Country flex their muscles today!
