The Bowlen family announced in July 2014 that Pat Bowlen is one of many Coloradoans living with Alzheimer's disease.
In the United States, an individual develops Alzheimer's every 66 seconds, and more than five million Americans are currently living with the disease.
"Team Super Bowlen," led by Annabel Bowlen and members of the Bowlen family, invites fans of the Broncos to help it reach its fundraising goal and to work to put an end to Alzheimer's. Those interested in joining "Team Super Bowlen" or donating to the cause can visit the team's page.
In addition to the Alzheimer's Association, the Broncos are proud to partner with identified non-profit organizations benefitting those in our community: American Cancert Society, Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Denver, Bonfils Blood Center, Denver Rescue Mission, Food Bank of the Rockies, Habitat for Humanity of Metro Denver, Project PAVE, the Rose Andom Center and USA Football.
