ENGLEWOOD, Colo. --** Broncos safety Omar Bolden announced Wednesday that his Positive Living movement will now grant a Positive Living Award before every Broncos home game for the 2015 season, rewarding select individuals who make remarkable impacts on their communities.
The award will honor those who go above and beyond in order to improve the lives of others—whether working with a nonprofit or lending a hand to someone in their time of need.
"Shedding light on the good in the community is something I believe needs to happen more frequently," Bolden said. "Everyone may be in a different corner, but we're all fighting the good fight."
The award will grant the recipient two tickets to a 2015 Denver Broncos home game, pregame field passes and Positive Living wristbands.

"Acknowledging these people and rewarding them with an opportunity to watch the Denver Broncos at a home game is important to me," Bolden said. "I never had the opportunity to attended a NFL game until I actually played in one."
Bolden began the Positive Living movement while at Arizona State University after suffering a torn anterior cruciate ligament during the spring game of 2011, causing him to miss his final year of eligibility. That year, Bolden stayed positive and continued to be a vocal leader on his team while also working to get healthy in time for the NFL Combine.
"At that point in my life, being positive was the only thing that helped me see the light at the end of the tunnel," says Bolden on his Positive Living website.
With that lesson, Bolden wants to reward those who also make their mark on the world through their positive outlook and positive actions.
"This award is also about encouraging individuals to be active in their communities and make a difference," Bolden said. "It is never too late or too early to get involved."
