DENVER, Colo.— The Broncos and U.S. Bank are presenting the fourth annual Mile High Salute to Fans Tour that will hit the road in late April and make stops in Durango (April 22), Montrose (April 23), Salida (April 24) and La Junta (May 6).
A fifth stop in a city to be determined by fan vote will be made on Friday, May 13.
Fans can nominate their choice for the fifth city through April 15 by visiting http://www.denverbroncos.com/fans/salute-to-fans-tour.html. The top three cities will be selected with a final fan vote determining the last location of the tour.
The tour, also supported in 2016 by El Pomar Foundation, will kick off Thursday, April 21, at new Broncos partner Lazydays RV (3640 Chambers Rd., Aurora, CO 80011), where a Broncos-branded RV will be picked up to provide transportation for the tour. The tour will include four day-long trips to cities located in the southern part the state.
"The Broncos recognize and appreciate all fans across the state of Colorado and the Rocky Mountain Region," Broncos director of marketing Ted Santiago said. "While they may not all be able to cheer on the Broncos in person at Sports Authority Field at Mile High, these fans are important to the success of the organization, and we're doing our part to bring the team to them."
The stops in each city will include a city celebration where fans will receive a city-specific Broncos World Champion sticker provided by U.S. Bank. In addition, Broncos players, cheerleaders and Miles the Mascot will be available for autographs and photos. Private football clinics and hospital visits (closed to the public) will also take place in each city.
El Pomar Foundation is teaming up with the Denver Broncos to promote health and wellness in communities outside the Front Rage. El Pomar will support a nonprofit organization at each stop to promote youth health and wellness through various football drills and activities for kids.
As a way to thank fans for their loyalty, passion and ongoing support, each tour stop will be free and open to the public (see schedule below for specific times and locations).
