Broncos fans young and old were provided with a treat at yesterday’s Broncos caravan tour stop in Greeley.
For younger Broncos fans, the event had football tosses with prizes for “completed passes” and they could participate in various physical sports such as a standing long jump and a 40 yard dash.
The Broncos mascot, Miles, was also available to pose with family and friends for pictures, while Thunder the horse quietly sat in a pen while being petted by fans.
For older fans, Mark Jackson and Vance Johnson, two of the Broncos wide receiver trio known as the Three Amigos were there to provide autographed pictures. During the event the two had great spirits, showing that they were truly grateful to the fans even after all these years.
Mayor Tom Norton fired up the crowd by telling them that the older fans needed to make sure the younger fans present become as fired up as the Broncos were.
The Nottingham field event was the last of three stops the caravan made that day. Earlier Broncos met with youth enrolled with Fun in the Sun at the Rodarte Center to promote Fuel Up to Play 60 with Miles, a program that inspires youth to “fuel up” with low-fat and fat-free dairy, fruits, vegetables, and whole grains and to “get up and play” for at least 60 minutes a day.
They then travelled to Sports Authority before heading over to UNC.
