Broncos host great kids for a special workout session at Dove Valley
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — More than 100 young people with disabilities gathered at Dove Valley for an agility and skills clinic with Denver Bronco players Wednesday.
The National Sports Center for the Disabled has hooked up with all of Denver’s sports teams to allow kids from ages five to 32, to get on the field with the pros for fun, picture taking sessions and just an overall good time.
“We just want the young people to get a chance to feel good about themselves,” said Becky Zimmerman, regional director. “We love getting kids and pros together it totally benefits both of them.”
A couple of Broncos, David Bruton and Mitch Unrein of Eaton High School, both joined other players putting the kids through football drills. Some were on foot others were in chairs, all had fun.
“I loved everything about this clinic,” said Jacob Miller—who had on a Colorado Rockies hat and Broncos t-shirt. “This is so fun I can’t believe I am on the same field the Broncos play on, it’s great!”
The NSCD also hooks up with other pro teams in Denver and runs programs for the youngsters year-round, with the help of more than 800 volunteers.
