DENVER -- Ahead of Saturday's 2016 Alzheimer's Association's Walk to End Alzheimer's, Head Coach Gary Kubiak and wide receiver Demaryius Thomas lent their support to the family of Broncos Owner Pat Bowlen.
The Bowlen family announced in July 2014 that Pat Bowlen is one of many Coloradans living with Alzheimer's disease.
"[The walk] is very important," Kubiak said. "Obviously [we] want to support the Bowlen family, Mr. B. Wish he was here with us on a daily basis but we continue to support [him], and I know it's very important to the family so we as a team will definitely do that."
"Team Super Bowlen" invites fans of the Broncos to help them reach their fundraising goal for the event, which will be held at City Park in Denver.
"Like I said when I first got here," Thomas said, "Mr. B took a chance on me as a receiver coming out of [Georgia] Tech. I've been here my whole career, thanks to him. Just to see what Alzheimer's is doing, it kills me, because my grandmother died with it and a lot of other people in my family have it, as well."
The walk, which will take place Saturday, Sept. 17, will begin with a ceremony at 9 a.m.
