DENVER — The Denver Broncos are kicking off the fall Play 60 Challenge this week at two different local Boys & Girls Club sites with their Denver Broncos/Gatorade Jr. Training Camps. More than 100 kids representative of each of the 18 metro Denver clubs will be in attendance for the events.
The first kickoff event will be held on Wednesday from 5-6:30 p.m. at the Owen Boys & Girls Club. The second kickoff event will take place on Thursday from 5-6:30 p.m. at the Denver Broncos Boys & Girls Club, which was established by the team in 2003.
Participants will engage in warm-up exercises, fitness testing, football skills, drills and more to celebrate the start of the fall Play 60 Challenge.
The Play 60 Challenge is a four-to-six week program started through a partnership between the NFL and American Heart Association to inspire kids to get the recommended 60 minutes of physical activity a day in school and at home. NFL Play 60 is implemented at the grassroots level through NFL’s in-school, after-school and team-based programs.
McDonald’s will provide a healthy meal for all participants at each event.
Denver Broncos mascot Miles and the Broncos Cheerleaders will be in attendance for both events.
