Recapping the Broncos' Random Acts of Kindness Week activities

Posted Feb 16, 2018

The second full week in February is recognized nationally as “Random Acts of Kindness Week” – with the goal of showcasing kindness that is doable, simple and meaningful. The Broncos committed to celebrating Random Acts of Kindness Week in a variety of ways.

Feb. 12: Passing out Valentine's Day cards to senior citizens at Forest Street Compassionate Care Center

Jeff Heuerman helped the Broncos kick off Random Acts of Kindness Week by joining 10 kids from the Denver Broncos Boys & Girls Club and two cheerleaders to deliver homemade Valentine’s Day cards and treats. The group distributed the cards and spent time interacting with residents at Forest Street Compassionate Care Center, which is predominantly an Alzheimer’s and memory-care facility. 

Feb. 13: Visiting Children's Hospital Colorado

Heuerman and Corey Nelson continued Random Acts of Kindness Week with a visit to Children’s Hospital Colorado. Heuerman, Nelson, their significant others and Miles the Mascot delivered Valentine’s Day candy and Thank You notes to caregivers (nurses, doctors, etc.) at the Highlands Ranch location. 

Feb. 13: Thanking nurses at UCHealth

Trevor Siemian participated in Random Acts of Kindness Week by visiting UCHospital. Siemian was joined by two cheerleaders and Miles the Mascot to deliver Valentine’s Day cupcakes and Thank You notes to the nursing staff in four units (Internal Medicine and Transplant, Surgical Specialties, Inpatient and Ambulatory, and STICU) at the hospital.

Feb. 14: Rose Andom Center Valentine’s Day party

The Broncos hosted a Valentine’s Day party for families served by the Rose Andom Center, which is a place for domestic violence victims to find the safety, support and services needed to rebuild their lives and heal their families. The team supplied food and beverages for the party, as well as gifts for all the parents in attendance.

Feb. 15: South Metro Fire & Rescue Visit

Kicking off a day dedicated to first responders, Siemian and Ring of Famer Billy Thompson visited South Metro Fire Station 35 to deliver coffee and breakfast items to the firefighters and tour the station. That specific station serves the area around UCHealth Training Center and is key to our team’s safety.

Feb. 15: Douglas County Sheriff’s Office visit

Casey Kreiter and his family visited the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office to deliver cake and coffee to the officers on-site and tour the station and jail. Kreiter had visited injured Deputy Jeff Pelle in the hospital after the tragic shooting on New Year’s Eve, and this was a continuation of his and the team's outreach for the county's officers.

Feb. 15: Visiting the Denver Police Department

Todd Davis, Thompson and Miles the Mascot visited the Denver Police Station in District 1. They delivered cake to the officers on-site, learned more about the day-to-day duties of Denver Police Officers and toured the station.
