Bruton, Green Participate in United Way Photoshoot

Posted Jul 21, 2014

David Bruton and Virgil Green joined kids from the Denver Broncos Boys and Girls Club for a billboard photoshoot with United Way on Monday.

DENVER -- David Bruton and Virgil Green put in a little bit of work for a little bit of play Monday at the Denver Broncos Boys and Girls Club.

The two players joined several of the club's kids for United Way's billboard photoshoot, encouraging kids to play 60 minutes a day to prevent childhood obesity. The shoot was the 10th of 32 stops for the NFL United Way Road Trip, which will wrap up after a stop with every NFL team on Aug. 8.

"There are a lot of kids out there that need to be active, need to stay active," Green said. "Whether you’re in shape or not, you always need to stay active."

"The platform that they have right now is incredible," said Tracey Holmes, the NFL Parternship Director at United Way Worldwide. "Adults want to hear what they have to say. Kids want to hear what they have to say. They have an incredible opportunity to change the culture."

Bruton, who was in Dallas last week promoting nutrition at the GENYOUth Summit, was excited to help "deliver a message," focusing on getting the kids to encourage each other.

"That’s what these efforts are about," he said. "Kids taking control of these programs. Just taking a strong grasp on the program and making it their own."

Green has been working with United Way in various programs since he entered the league and still enjoys interacting with the kids.

"It’s always great to see the kids smiling," he said. "Even though we’re doing something that took a little order, it was still fun and enjoyable."

Once the shoot was finished, order evaporated as Bruton and Green led teams against each other in tug-of-war. Bruton, with the clear size disadvantage, resorted to trick techniques, having his team let go of the rope immediately. But Green wasn't fooled, standing his ground without falling backward.

"I knew he was up to something," Green said with a laugh.

When both teams returned to full speed, Green came out on top again.

"Initially, David was kind of pulling kind of hard and then I had to shift into overdrive and make sure my kids went home with the win," he said.
